Soon People Will Be Like, "TV? What's That?"
First there was the Pew study earlier this week that revealed young people’s rapid shift away from network TV as a source of political news. Mostly, they’re going to the Internet, but also to cable TV and newsmagazines.
Ask not for whom the page loads, TV. It loads for thee.
Call me a net-centric techno-nerd, but I see absolutely no downside to a public shift from TV to the Internet, especially in the realm of political coverage. Am I missing something?
(P.S. If you actually call me a net-centric techno-nerd you’ll get hurt.)
