In an interview, Rupert Murdoch the man who placed 'Mass' before 'Media' announced that newspapers can't adapt to the way in which the internet has been taking a hold of articles. He also pointed out the problems, with both advertising and the reporters themselves.
The media magnate Rupert Murdoch predicted a gloomy future for newspapers, which he said are failing to adapt to the realities of the Internet.

Murdoch, whose global business interests include leading titles in London, New York and Sydney, said the traditional press and the Internet would exist side by side "for many, many years to come."

"There will always be room for good journalism and good reporting," he told Britain's media trade journal Press Gazette, but costs had been stripped to a bare minimum.

So, here it is guys and girls.

Murdoch: 0

Will this be a wake-up call to the 'Media' that we as a people are taking a hold of the 'truth' and showing it? For years, newspapers, television and the education system have been how we 'learn' and the internet has changed that for all of us able to reach it.

Is the full impact of this 'Digital Revolution' being felt?

Excellent find. I think this really shows how bad journlism gets when you apply not just Newscorps but general globalistic attitudes to cost-structures to Journalism.

It creates a mess that is not journalism, but mearly simply relaying what is being told to them by government autorities. No cross-checking, no investigative reporting, no Journalism at all. It's barely even passing for commentary these days..

There are many cost advantages to online publications for them. Ontop of this there is also the ability to quickly edit, or retract stories that are later deemed 'not appropriate' or, whatever with basically no evidence that it was ever printed. I certainly don't like that side of it.

Most Newspapers have Websites.
A reasonable percentage of These Websites generate LOTS of revenue
for said Newspaper. That is, if they were smart enough to jump in early, and collaborate with other web services (Jobs, REAL Estate, Etc.)

the smarter\smaller Newpapers have also returned to Local news formats, versus World news. For obvious reasons. Can't get your local news on CNN.
