Is the role and relevance of the foreign correspondent now defunct or is it evolving?

Foreign correspondence, I explained, is not as foreign as it used to be. “There, not here,” is over. It is a momentous, overlooked shift in the world: Foreign correspondents no longer cover one place for the exclusive benefit of readers somewhere else. In the Internet age, we cover each place for the benefit of all places, and the reported-on are among the most avid consumers of what we report.

Read this particularly revealing and thought provoking story in the New York Times for a snapshot of how the web is really transforming journalism.
