Watched it all the way through..from the way Liz describes her career, you would think she grew up in the slums of Mumbai instead of Beverly Hills. My short review is it is yet more of the same tiresome and self-serving self flagellation reporters are famous for. I do find it ironic that the topic of the forum-the failure of business journalism, gives them a platform to describe their real jobs of kissing CEO ass to get them to come on TV for a softball interview...and how none of their job is, oh, knowing how to read a 10K. Liz and Baldy are accomplished enough performers to sound convincing to the uninitiated though. I liked how a couple times even their (student!) audience laughed at them. All in all, not worth the time it takes to watch it.

It maybe true that people are turning to business outlets out of anger but I think she is right in that it is a good thing that people are getting more self-educated. I think either way it is important for people to be educated about this economic problem and yes people will continue to look at the political system and ask what happened. However, I don't think this will draw out the economic problem, if anything I think it will help them to be aware of the concerns and come up with the best plan to regulate the economy and prevent problems in the future.

I don’t understand Alan Mooray’s skepticism on making money through running a blog. Nowadays there so many successful blogs which help journalists and other professionals to earn a decent living. For example, in Technorati’s top 100 blog list there are many companies that pay regular salaries to their staff bloggers. On the other hand, I agree that it is a long process to establish your own blog and to make it profitable.
