[Podcast] You Tell Me, Mr. Newsman
Pew Research Center’s “State of the News Media 2015” is a must-read for anyone who follows the U.S. media. This year, the report provided a broad look at the media landscape, while also identifying winners and losers, based on audience size and revenue. Not surprisingly, the report painted a rough picture for newspapers and cable news, while it projected a brighter future for mobile and digital news, local and network news, and podcasts.
On today’s episode, Jim and I break through as much of the 96-page report as we can. Along the way, we touch on how some of the most prominent stories of the day are reported (including Deflategate), the value of streaming radio, whether Feedly or Pulse is a preferred news aggregating app, and much more.
