My stint as host of NewsTrust’s journalism topic area comes to an end today. Here are five stories I submitted this morning:
- For The New York Times, the digital future is now by Daniel Terdiman, CNET News
- TV Paparazzi Turn Cameras to Corporate Titans by Brian Stelter, The New York Times
- About that newspaper “doomsday” list by Alan D. Mutter, Reflections of a Newsosaur
- How Newspapers Must Change to Survive by Michael S. Malone, ABC News
- Brawl Street: Get Read to Buy Low! And Sell Die by Jon Stewart, “The Daily Show”
I could write an entire post on the last item, but I’ll just say this: Stewart is perhaps the best and most important media critic we’ve had since A.J. Liebling.
His dissection of CNBC’s Jim Cramer last night — as well as his two eight-minute pieces lampooning the so-called experts of CNBC (here and here) — will have, I predict, a major and well-deserved negative effect on the network.
