"While The Guardian and The New York Times reported on the NSA targeting of data leaked by popular mobile apps, independent sources produced highly-detailed articles--accompanied by source material--that paint a much broader picture of NSA capabilities and intent. Recent restrictions imposed on journalists--a result of corporate influence, editorial decisions, and threats against journalists--combined with the ease of establishing a website, might be driving a new era in journalism.

The Intercept recently announced a shift towards independent reporting with the creation of their own news outlet, free of the constraints imposed on journalists by 'Big Media' and governments. Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Jeremy Scahill have joined forces to provide the world with an alternative, perhaps blazing a path towards a fundamental change in how news is reported and distributed. SoylentNews can play a significant role in this shift towards journalistic freedom--we share many common core-ideals, and can give voice to independent news sources.

The Big Question: How will 'Big Media' and governments react to this shift in journalism?"

    OK, so I admit, I'm addicted to the comments on Robert Peston's blog and have been since 2007
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/correspondents/robertpes ton/ [bbc.co.uk]

    Its where I get my fill of econopolitics at any rate and at least one step up from the Zerohedge madness. The centre left / establishment leanings of the BBC are not going to get what you are after, I would recommend the Guardian.
