It ends with an examination of the vigorous conservative citizen journalist movement inspired by the Internet.Over the course of the twentieth century, the mainstream media establishment increasingly tied its fortunes to academia. Credentialing elite journalists became the purview of left-wing educators, as journalism education itself became a social justice and progressive reform activity. This is the state of journalism education today at elite schools such as Columbia.But the news about academia and journalism is not all bad.

Many educators continue teaching the non-ideological craft of reporting news. A thriving culture of traditional journalism training exists at conservative and Christian schools. And conservative journalists were among the first to grasp the potential of the Internet and establish new online publications that are now reaching vast audiences.Grabar and Trent interview journalism educators and survey the citizen journalism movement.

They also discuss the influence of two highly influential (and controversial) new media figures, Matt Drudge and Alex Jones.
