The rapid growth of smartphones and electronic tablets is making the Internet the destination of choice for consumers looking for news, a report released Monday said.
Whoa, whoa, whoa quoth the Main Stream Media, Smart phones? Tablets? Guys, we dont even get computers, yet.
Anyway, for those who think these things spell the eventual death knell for the over-stayed Main Stream Media, two things: (a) The same report confirms that television, newspapers, radio, and news magazines lost audiences while Internet-based sources increased by a whopping 17%proving that Americans want real news after all, and (b) youre absolutely freaking right.
The only thing that still beats Internet news readership (which possibly now leans conservative) is local television news…although the same report speculated that Internet news will soon surpass that, as well.
Good riddance, the Czar says. Seems he cannot watch a television news broadcast or read a newspaper account without leaping to his feet and screaming You lying brigands! Dastardly reprobates! Ask Mandarin; it scares the hell out of him every time we do it.
Remember, unless you read this somewhere else already, you heard it here first!
