I found the following online a few days ago – or did someone send it to me? Anyway it sums up the current state of the new media at present.

“I mourn the death of intelligent broadcast journalism. All of it is so driven by the pressures of 24-hour news, the restless desire for sensation, that it has been reduced to a gabble. No one thinks any more; no one has the time to think. Journalists are mere followers of limousines, facilitators of lies and evasions, dutiful cheer-leaders. There is no way back. About the vile press, I say nothing.”
