UK press: "Views v news to set agenda "

"The issue of journalistic accountability will dominate the newspaper industry after a year of format and ownership changes, the editor of the Guardian said yesterday.

"Alan Rusbridger said the Independent's conversion to a "viewspaper" posed pivotal questions about the future of newspaper journalism. "If you have got news organisations saying 'we are putting news behind views', this is a fundamental statement about what newspapers are for and what journalism is for ... It is radically new, it is not what serious broadsheet journalism was about.""
