Debate Over Whether Internet is Improving or Killing Journalism to Be Settled By Online Poll

Romenesko notes the debate between new-media evangelist Jay Rosen and The Shallows author Nicholas Carr over whether the Internet is making journalism better. The debate takes place on the website of The Economist; a poll of readers will settle the issue, permanently, forever. (72% say the Internet makes journalism better, so far, but consider the statistical notion of selection bias before declaring the matter closed.)
