The Old/New Media Discussion Continues

Arkansas Business President and Publisher Jeff Hankins’ newspaper column this week, which we noted and commented on yesterday, has sparked a response from Blake Rutherford over at the Think Tank as well as several follow-up comments from folks including Tyson Foods’ Ed Nicholson, PR pro Natalie Ghidotti, “THV This Morning” producer Matthew Carroll and KZNG New Talk 1340 AM radio man Neal Gladner.

It’s all about the blurring of lines between paid, “professional” journalists and a new breed of Internet-enabled “citizen” journalists — the “hundred years war,” as Kinkade puts it. You can find more via Hankins’ Twitterstream here.
