Ordinary Juan: Both as news source and consumer

Just found this while looking at the old issues of the Philippine Journalism Review (PJR):

"Our society has become politicized more and faster, political relationships become increasingly complexed.... Everybody has become potentially both a news source and a news consumer."

- BusinessWorld editorial board chair and former Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility Vergel Santos, observing how political journalism has ceased to be the preserve of presidential and congressional reporters (PJR December 1991)

For a second there I thought he was talking about blogging and citizen journalism.
