Well, relatively new, because the effects of technology infuencing media will only lead to true news. Eliminating bias opinions of reporters, network executives etc.. is only a good thing! I will lead to accurate news and a very concious(spelling) society that will eventually be impervious to distorted media. Thus changing the way news is looked at, broadcasted, interpreted etc.... Imagine President Kennedys assasination, if everyone pulled out cell phones and started taking picture of everything, there would be no mystery of a cover up/patsys/multiple gun men. Maybe, Roswald New Mexico when whatever crashed years ago, if the first witnesses on the scene uploaded pictures upon arrival, the news and government would not have had a chance to DO whatever it is that they did.
