From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The writing has been on the wall for more than a decade. Due to their avoidance behavior, 20th century media have now found themselves in a bind. I do not support yet another prop-up of the failing systems of the past and their mistake of ignoring the trends and opportunities. The future is inevitable and must be met with optimism and an unfailing commitment to improve. Let the market sort this out. We will all be better, after some initial pain possibly, for it.
