The recent firing of hard-hitting Washington Post blogger, Bush critic and Obama watchdog Dan Froomkin left what even the Post acknowledged was "an army of angry followers." With Froomkin promptly hired by the Huffington Post, Glenn Greenwald takes an insightful look at the shifting dynamic of traditional and online journalism.

"Journalism itself is not dying. What is dying – and rightfully so – is
the staid, establishment-serving, passion-free, access-desperate,
mindless stenographic model to which establishment journalism rigidly
adheres... People are obviously hungry for the
type of real journalism Froomkin practices."
