THE IMAGE ABOVE IS FROM an ad that ran in the Philadelphia Inquirer on Wednesday.
The ad boasted that the newsgathering staff at the Inquirer was WAY larger than the that of the local news radio station. It accuses the radio anchors of reading the Inquirer on air as a way of doing their reporting.
The ad, of course, comes a few days after the owners of the Philadelphia Inquirer filed for bankruptcy.
I just wanted you to see how desperate the mainstream print media is getting.
You guys are the future of journalism. You have the ability to shape how news is delivered in the years ahead.
Do we even need printed newspapers anymore if most people get their information online?
(BTW - Fox29 did a reaction story and basically found that most people don't read the newspaper or listen to the radio. Lovely.)
