Internet Gains Most as Campaign News Source but Cable TV Still Leads

http://www.journalism.org/commentary_backgrounder/social_media_doubles_remains_limited


The internet in closing in on cable sources and has passed Corporate tv broadcast news.




... of course, conservative wacko sites grab much of the traffice on the internet but at least there are sites that provide people with legitimate information as an alternative to the GOP Propaganda provided by Corporate broadcast media.

Suggest people, when commenting on Corporate media sites, also inform people of good, informative sites on internet as an alternative to the GOP Toadies prattling away with GOP propaganda on M$M.

1. I heard on a clip just a short while ago

that NBC on this evening's network telecast would be trashing the people on the Internet.

Something along the lines of "winners on the Internet" and "losers in real life."

Keep an eye out for it.

Thanks for the thread, Bill USA.

2. M$M Toadies who function as GOP surrogates are very anxious about the web. They know it's stealing

viewers and (on the right sites) making a mockery of the M$M Echo Chamber for GOP propgaganda. They know as people go to the web, and the right sites, they will find this out and more and more people will go to web-sites to get informed on what's really happening.


....M$M, of course, will still be good for entertainment world gossip.

3. I watched NBC but I didn't see it,

perhaps it was on a different network?

I just caught the tail end of the teaser.

4. I certainly can't prove this, but I think the political debate has to some extent been affected by

web-based discussion/critiques of political speech. I seems like there are more references to "studies" in conversations and debates as a way of establishing the veracity/validity of their assertions - more than used to be the case. (of course when a Republican uses that word that would include editorials from the Wall Street Journal or a crib sheet from a political advisor (LOL).)
