One last (hah!) thought on the print news/weblogs tussle. I remember last fall seeing a Chicago Sun-Times front page on the arrest of John Walker Lindh. The front page was a screen showing CNN with Walker being carted away. CNN was running live feedback from its viewers, and there was one e-mail posting printed on the bottom of the TV screen: "Leave him there. He's no American." So if you're keeping score, this was a case of a television network broadcasting e-mail, all of which was frozen in time by a newspaper. How's that for new media?
