BuzzMachine‘s Jeff Jarvis responds to criticism from Ron Rosenbaum that he is not teary-eyed enough about all the journalists losing jobs at newspapers. Read it all, it’s interesting. But this is what caught my eye (emphasis added):
He complains about my trust in the market â€” â€œthe same market that created this debacle and came close to destroying the economy.â€ I say at some level, if you donâ€™t trust the market – the people, us – then you donâ€™t value democracy, capitalism, education, art â€¦ or journalism (for why trust, empower, enable, ennoble, and inform the people if we all a bunch of idiots?). â€œHeâ€™s the Sarah Palin of gurus,â€ Rosenbaum says. â€œThe crowd is always right.â€ Donâ€™tcha know, itâ€™s often more right than we give it credit for.
