    I started to read Terrific Twitter Chats for Twits…I mean journalists….but couldn’t get past this first sentence:

    “The web has become the place where a large number of people go to get their news, and with good reason. It’s always on, numerous viewpoints are represented, and anyone can contribute….”

    Did someone born circa 1950 write this? A “large number of people” choose to get their news off the “web”? Stop the presses!
