    These same arguments came out about a decade ago, talking about IRC. Once on some channel somewhere there was a Croatian who was able to discuss in real time what the Serbs were doing in his hometown, and do it unfiltered on IRC.

    That makes IRC a set of news networks in the same way that blogs make bloggers journalists. We'll likely see the same tired argument resurface in a few years when another person-to-person medium of communication (broadcasting SMS?) becomes popular.
