Former Time Magazine Executive Editor Christopher Porterfield acknowledges that Time, and the rest of the news media, have to adjust to changing times, in order to compete.
Porterfield, a guest on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com, edited the book TIME: 85 Years of Great Writing.
The book is a look back, but also a primer for the future of journalism.
Yes, Porterfield acknowledges, Time Magazine is a little bit thinner than it was year's ago. But there's now http://www.time.com/ - a new outlet for the magazine's reporters.
To those who say the news media gave Pres. Bush a pass as compared to its approach to Presidents Nixon and Clinton, Porterfield says, yes, the hard questions weren't asked leading up to the invasion of Iraq as the nation was in a post-9/11 patriotic mode.
Let's hope the journalistic community has learned from this mistake as the nation faces new challenges in the months and years to come.
