What happens when every journalist makes the same error?


How Music Got Free: What happens when an entire generation commits the same crime? is a forensic and insightful analysis of the rise of MP3 technology and the parallel decline of the record industry. I was particularly struck by author Stephen Witt's observation that the only field that handled the digital transition worse than music was journalism.
