"MAINSTREAM MEDIA" -- IS IT BECOMING IRRELEVANT

I don't read newspapers. I never watch news on broadcast television stations, only cable outlets. Mostly, I get news from the Internet.

So am I unusual? Or am I the norm? Don't know, but my gut says the norm is getting closer to me.

Glenn Harlan Reynolds thinks so, and in this piece about the rapid evolution of information flow, he suggests:

The media barons should be worried. The real problem is that to succeed in a business, you have to be better than your competitors at giving people what they want or need. The mainstream media needs to ask itself whether it's capable of doing that -- and, if not, how it needs to change.
