I threw away TV and don't miss it. IMO only reason for a TV is to get HBO [shakes fist at heavens and shouts "damn you HBO!"]

Since old "broadcast" media are so repelled by the internets and obsessed with [lack of] money and eyeballs... I don't have to worry about being tricked into consuming television online.

The only thing that hit my radar of late was the addition of Daily Show and Colbert to hulu... I guess I like my TV news fake and ironic :-)

I hope the newspapers figure it out, though, it must be terrible to work in paper media today.


I have written extensively on how I think editors and journalists have tremendous value - yet it seems that the shiny object syndrome has taken over in many a newsroom. In the struggle to survive, many news organizations are making decisions that impoverish the outcome of news delivery.

We talk about products and services being of paramount importance to marketing. The news is the product for mainstream media. I would approach a sustainable plan starting from there.

To answer that last question from where I am sitting, yes, mainstream media still possesses a significant amount of values that are greatly undermined by alternative writers like bloggers and such.

The adoption of social media seemed to have eroded what their initial directions are - to report news as they are meant to be.
