The death of journalism
Unquestioning into the Iraq war? Aluminum tubes? Embedded journalism? A role in swiftboating John Kerry? Not looking into the open rumors about John Edwards' affair? Happy talk/no investigative reporting on the economy/derivatives/Madoff? Guantanamo?
On the other side, a key role in forcing a response to Katrina? Walter Reed? Wiretapping?
I think it's a huge loss if the newspapers go away, but I don't think we should put on our rose colored eulogy glasses either. "Journalism" over the last decade has not been superlative.
