Will Bunch is taking a short sabbatical from AttyTood for a special project that sounds right up our alley, and he's got some questions for you:

One of the ways that journalism must change is that we must start and -- in the case of this site -- continue our two-way dialogue with the community, as oppose to talking down to some unseen "audience" (that's been fast disappearing, anyway). This project isn't just advocating that conversation, but it is an embrace of that.

So, what do you want to see from the news organization of the immediate future?

If the phony objectivity and on-the-one-hand, on-the-other-hand balance of the late 20th Century didn't work, what should replace it?

How can journalists better become part of their community, and become voices of the everyday people, and not mouthpieces for the powerful people that we cover?

How can mainstream journalists and bloggers work together for a better informed American public?

In an era of shrinking print advertising and a not-so-promising picture for online ads, either, who will pay for investigative reporting?

Do you, as a citizen and reader, have a role to play in the creation of journalism? If so, what is that role?

Can you help us out?

For 17 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
