Stephen Dujack, the Concerned Alumni of Princeton investigator, asks if citizen participation in government survive the advent of the Internet search engine?
IN 21ST CENTURY Washington, fame doesn’t last for 15 minutes anymore. It lasts for a single news cycle. There is the big press release. The next morning the major newspapers spell your name right. But by noon the Drudge Report runs a shotgun blast of half-truths and innuendoes, and by evening pundits are sifting through your entrails on CNN and Fox….. In the era of the search engine, no good (or bad) deed goes unpunished.
