Yesterday, Michael Kinsley wrote in Slate about readers of print vs. web. Who was better informed, he wondered? Today, he has an update in a piece called News Junkie Smackdown. Two journalists read only the web for an hour each day, and two journalists read only print. The main difference seems to be the amount of commentary available on the web. And a curious story about $4 million ham that wasn’t in any of the newspapers. But whatever, pork isn’t kosher, anyway.
