Web 2.0 and Journalism

This week's latest sex scandal brought to you by... MySpace and Facebook. Well not completely. Just every piece of information about the woman at the center of the ordeal.

The article is about your standard important government dude + not so important non government woman except this specific article chronicles her Facebook usage. It seems that the social web is one of the first stops for journalists these days.

I agree. It amazes me that what in the past would be considered frivilous sources are now the first think news anchors show. Items such has blog reports, facebook/myspace pages, and The Daily Show are now becoming very common in "serious" news reports.
