From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
THE FORMERLY MAIN STREAM MEDIA WOULD BE DOING JUST FINE AND HAVE ALL THE READERS - VIEWERS ETC. THAT THEY DID BEFORE THE INTERNET IF THEY WOULD DO JUST ONE THING, IT WOULD BE EASY AND WOULD NOT COST A PENNY AND THAT WOULD BE TO TELL THE TRUTH AND BY THAT I WOULD INCLUDE NOT LYING BY OMISSION. YOU WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT WHEN FOX STARTED TO CLIMB IN THE RATINGS THEY WOULD HAVE CAUGHT ON. BY NOT ADMITTING WHAT THEY ARE DOING WRONG, THEY ARE IN FACT ADMITTING THAT THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING BUT THEY ARE NOT GOING TO STOP AND THAT THEY HAVE ANOTHER AGENDA OTHER THAN PRINTING OR BROADCASTING THE NEWS. THIS KIND OF ACTION WILL, IN THE LONG RUN HAVE AN OPPOSITE EFFECT ON THE PUBLIC, MUCH LIKE THE REACTION THEY HAD TO OBAMACARE.
