Marvin Olasky weighs in with this article. He points out that Halberstam was old journalism in which an icon spoke of what was/is happening. Now with blogs, everyone can be a journalist, where will this take us-to a new empowerment or just more fractional polarizing squabbling?
Michael Young is the Editor of a newspaper in Lebanon. Remember what I said about reading opinions outside the US. His article on Halberstam suggests the same as Olasky's, the world has changed and perhaps the passing of Halberstam, is yet another signpost along that journey.
