If technology has finally caught up with individual liberty, why would anyone who loves freedom want to rethink that?
You would be amazed what the ordinary guy knows.
Not everything I do is gossip or bedroom. To the contrary, I think that's just an easy label to dismiss me and to dismiss the new medium.
Some of the best news stories start in gossip. Monica Lewinsky certainly was gossip in the beginning. I had heard it months before I printed it.
All truths begin as hearsay, as far as I'm concerned.
I didn't go to the right schools, didn't come from a well-known family, nor was I even remotely connected to a powerful publishing dynasty.
It seems to me we are losing our way in an effort to get the ratings.
There's a danger of the Internet just becoming loud, ugly and boring with a thousand voices screaming for attention.
There's nothing more exciting than to watch a story break and grow, and to be the first one to present it to the world.
The first step in good reporting is good snooping.
We have entered an era vibrating with the din of small voices. Every citizen can be a reporter, can take on the powers that be.
I do most of my business on that dirty Internet that you were just talking about, where I find there is a lot of freedom to report exactly what I want.
I envision a future where there'll be 300 million reporters, where anyone from anywhere can report for any reason. It's freedom of participation absolutely realized.
Because I have success, it doesn't mean I'm part of the mainstream. I'm still an outsider.
The media is comparable to government-probably passes government in raw power.
