Slate and Michael Kinsley on print vs. web

This is a great article by Michael Kinsley posted this afternoon. From characterizing the LA Times as ‘formerly great’ and ‘squeezed into irrelevance,’ to the awesome use of ‘jeremiad’ (twice), Kinsley is brilliant. And he invites online readers to discuss the day’s news, thus generating our own news in determining just how journalistically proficient we actually are.

Or, he says, continue reading newspapers and don’t participate. You’ll just be the control group.
