Newspapers *should* forget news? They certainly massively reduced anything that you would call 'reporting' for quite a long time now.

And there are plenty of people writing the kind of opinion peices that they pay for - often better ones - and getting published without any help from newspapers.

What if we just ignored newspapers altogether until they have the decency to start reporting instead of commenting again? I suspect that this accounts for a lot of the apparent hunger out there that is being met my citizen journos. I think that when newspapers try and co-opt this kind of thing, it devalues it anyway. Look at the bear-pit that 'Comment is Free' has become.
