Guardian Editor Alan Rusbridger announced the fantastic news that Carter Ruck had backed down
over Twitter. How very appropriate. The Guardian can now print what the internet has spread over and over and over again.
Yes this is a victory for The Guardian, in a battle it should never have had to fight, however it would not have won without the weight of the new media behind it. Without blogs and twitter the Guardian would have been forced to bow down to the mighty Ruck-us with very little they could do. They won the battle, but they wounded themselves so heavily in doing so, it is unlikely they will last the war. If there was ever proof needed that the MSM was dying, let this be it. The Guardian have signed their own death warrent today, wouldn't celebrate too hard over this one.
Another nail in the old media coffin.
