NEWSPAPERS RETHINK NET
A study   by the Pew Centre for Civic Journalism says the
  Internet is forcing newspapers to reassess their role and
   increase interactivity with readers. Describing it as a
  sea change, the biggest shift has been to invite audiences
  not only to comment on the newspaper, but to participate
in it. 80% of newspapers provide readers with reporters'
emails, and   have created email, voice-mail and Web site
  news tip lines.  70%   offer readers ways to publish their
  own ideas in addition to letters to the editor.  See
