"I'm not sure if the craft I love is being murdered, committing suicide, or both."

I love good, hard-hitting photojournalism. My photo heroes were always Gene Smith, David Burnett, both of the Capa brothers, Eisenstadt and Eugene Richards.

But now there are questions if photojournalism itself is going to survive in a post-digital world

I'd argue for suicide. The ones who are killing it off are the ones taking the pictures. Pointing fingers to the bloggers who ask the questions the journalists themselves should be asking is to no avail. Don't shoot the messenger, instead, listen to his message.

A Modest Proposal:

Bandwidth is cheap. Storage is cheap. So why no put all the shots that a photo editor sees online, and let us, the reader, decide if his choice was valid, and see if there is an undue amount of editorial trickery and manipulation.

Ok, Rueters, Photobucket is waiting. The next move is up to you.
