When was the last time you opened your computer and navigated to, say, the home page of the New York Times? When was the last time you read a piece from CNN and thought to yourself, "fantastic—what fair and objective reporting that was!"
It's time to face the music: Mainstream media—the vaunted publications of lore like the Times, the Post, the Journal—have lost their luster. It's in part because we as consumers have gone sour on institutions in general, favoring instead a cohort we feel we can trust much more...individuals.
So what does this shift mean for the future of journalism, media, news, and the innumerable ways we as consumers count on those things to live informed and thoughtful lives?
Let's think about it...with Brian Morrissey, creator of The Rebooting and former president and editor-in-chief of Digiday.
