    This may be a total DB, as it's a month old but just came over my Twitter feed from a fellow sportswriter, but I hadn't noticed it earlier.

    Not sure I agree with it, but I thought we were headed this way a decade ago. When teams started pushing readers to their own websites and hiring their own beat writers, they had little use for objective journalists. Social media has changed things even more.

    There are papers (decent ones) that regularly run compilations of what the local athletes have tweeted that day.

    and since those Tweets are on the Internets, they must be true!
