From the Publisher"Journalism is changing from something that 'they' do to something that we do. Scott Gant offers a clear, readable, and persuasive argument for treating journalism as an inclusive activity, rather than the pursuit of a privileged few."
— Glenn Reynolds, Founder of InstaPundit.com and author of An Army of Davids: How Markets and Technology Empower Ordinary People to Beat Big Media, Big Government and Other Goliaths
"Propelled in large part by the transforming effect of the Web, journalism is undergoing dramatic changes, with ordinary people starting to provide high-quality reporting and new institutions arising to provide opportunities to citizen and professional journalists. Scott Gant's timely and important book places these changes in their historic and legal contexts, and persuasively argues that we need to rethink how rights and privileges for journalists are allocated in our society."
— Craig Newmark, Internet entrepreneur and founder of craigslist
"I do not agree with all of Mr. Gant's conclusions. But I appreciate them and, more important, understand them perfectly; he writes more clearly than most lawyers and thinks more deeply than most journalists. His topic is a crucial one. He is well up to the challenge."
— Eric Burns, author of Infamous Scribblers: The Founding Fathers and the Rowdy Beginnings of American Journalism
"We're All Journalists Now is the name of Scott Gant's riveting and incisive book. It is also a truth the meaning of which most of us have not yet grasped. Gant has a lot to teach us about the history of journalism, its economics, ethics, psychological consequences, and also the very meaning of fact."
— Martin Peretz, Editor-in-Chief, The New Republic
