A good friend asked what will happen to the major media streams in TV and print.
I can only point out that media seems to survive in new forms. When TV came along and displaced the centrality of radio, it took radio about 20 years to become the medium of auto travel with a lot of pop music. Then another 20 years to invent conservative talk radio where radio thrives with a bigger audience than any other medium.
I also recognize that the current TV, newspaper and Public Radio media world is divided into everyone on one side of the political spectrum and the rest on Fox News. A similar situation exists in the movie medium.
TV worldwide is American with NCIS the most popular program (police procedural). It has a military and conservative aura.
The Internet seems to be a medium for all views and channels. It is a new and powerful replacement for every other media at this point. In some sense the Internet is not a medium, it is a large bandwidth that carries all media.
There is an interesting Internet location, allsides.com, that tries to present the news from a Left, Right and Middle perspective selecting from the main media channels. Look at it and give me your reaction.
I find news from multiple perspectives to be boring. I prefer a bias such as the Drudge Report. It seems that most Americans are like me, in this regard.
