Death of the news

Has anyone noticed that news is dying?  I don’t mean that there aren’t any stories to be covered. There are more stories now than there ever have been but those stories are being covered more and more by people like you and me. We’re blogging, tweeting, texting and in the process we’ve made the talking heads on cable news and the pundits at newspapers increasingly irrelevant. Newspapers are literally dying in front of our eyes and I believe more and more net generation people get their news from Drudge, Huffington and elsewhere.  What do you think?

  1. I believe it, Don. I know my situation isn’t typical (religious life) but it is striking. I live in a big community. Each day we get the local paper, the NY Times, the Daily News, and the Post. I am the only one who even looks at the Times. The News and the Post get used because you can lay out the sports numbers in front of you. The local paper is only perused for the obituaries.
