Guardian column: Taking responsibility

My Guardian column this week is a columnization of the post I wrote last week rebutting Paul Farhi’s absolution of journalists in the fall of journalism. The point remains:

My purpose in rebutting Farhi, Greenslade and Monck is not to flagellate journalists but to empower them. To take responsibility for the fall of journalism is to take responsibility for its fate. Who’ll try to save it if not journalists? There’s not a minute to waste whining.
