"You're going to be up against people who have an opinion, a modem, and a bathrobe. All of my life, developing credentials to cover my field of work, and now I'm up against a guy named Vinny in an efficiency apartment in the Bronx who hasn't left the efficiency apartment in two years" -- Brian Williams, anchor of the NBC Nightly News speaking before New York University journalism students on the challenges traditional journalism faces from online media.

My name is not Vinny. My name is John Doe...Opps..sorry....Vinny's of the world unite! So what's wrong with effciencey apartments? What a wanker...
