Journalists should be Rabbis rather than MBAs

Leonard Witt:

I want our journalists to be wise, thoughtful members of the community, rather than cold and calculating distant observers. In this new participatory culture we will need information providers, aggregators, mediators and navigators, who are part of the community but who have status because of their wisdom and accomplishments, not because of their degree.

Amen, brother.

To take the religious metaphor a step further — though switching faiths — it’s high time for a Reformation.
