“This new democracy is a good thing. It is challenging our existing sources of authority, in the media and in politics, and so it should. For our population is disengaged from our political process, apathetic about its outcomes and – I am afraid to say – equally distrustful of the politicians who participate in it and the media that reports it all.
People are no longer prepared to sit and be spoon fed. They are taking matters into their own hands through their blogs and online networks and user-generated content.
They are organising political campaigns and building coalitions based around common interests. They are spreading news and information to one another on a scale never before thought possible.
They are the masters now.”
And don’t you forget it boy.
