I live 11 minutes away from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey. Friday evening I
took a Cessna Caravan for a short 45-minute flight to Martha's Vineyard. This
was my first trip to the island. I didn't do any research and had false

communication media. But I am delighted about its raison d'être.
However, I cannot but ask these questions: Is Ulitzer the beginning of a new
trend or the ultimate death of journalism?
Or is it the glorification of e-journalism?
The realization of new journalism practice in the age of Web services and
These series of questions are being answered everyday as the new social media
moguls and barons and baronesses of the Internet Media launched another
online media channel, one after another.
