The good news

The incredible role played by YouTube and citizen-generated video.
And perhaps an understanding that "news" can be presented a lot of different ways.
Well maybe not Patch but hyperlocal sites.
When they work.

And here's one close to home.
At a statewide level, we have an unbundled site for government and politics.
Here's a slightly jazzier version. (remember Rapaille and codes.)
And a cool-looking semi-paywall version.
About $150 million in nonprofit money has flowed into news projects since 2006.
In many ways, the home feed of Facebook has become -- or can become -- a multivitamin news source.
Some FB users use their pages as, essentially blogs.
Twitter and Tumblr are elastic, searchable news sources.
