Old Media bands together to defeat New Media

via Political Insider.

In an unprecedented move to combine journalistic resources, Georgia’s 12 largest daily newspapers announce the formation of an historic partnership to deliver comprehensive political coverage across the state.

    old media… new media… reminds me to ask about Spacey. Is she still singing Toby Keith songs?

    More like, Old Media bands together to try to make up for massive layoffs. I was kind of surprised to see some of the ‘mid-majors’ on this list. Rome News Tribune is an independent that has seen some success even during the recession. Chattanooga is also an independent. There’s even several CNHI papers in the partnership.

    The Cox, Morris and McClatchy bosses would barely acknowledge those little guys’ existence in the olden days. Now they’re begging to share resources… sign o’ the times…

    By the way, this is not an old media v. new media battle. ‘New Media’ (as in this blog and the many thousands like it across the country) need old media to survive. Old Media still breaks the stories. We just regurgitate and then inject childishness, opinion and slant.

      Admittedly, there is more for me to read on this “strange bedfellows” affiliation, but this is incontrovertible, can you say MSN. The new media, such as American Thinker and The Drudge Report, break the most important relevant stories. The MSM continues to ignore the pertinent information, or relegates it to the “fringe Right”. Speak for yourself regarding regurgitation.

    So now Ox has to blame the lib’ral Atlanta Journal-Constitution/Athens Banner Herald/Augusta Chronicle/Chattanooga Times Free Press/Columbus Ledger-Enquirer/Gainesville Times/Georgia Times-Union/Macon Telegraph/Rome News Tribune/Savannah Morning News/Statesboro Herald/Valdosta Daily Times?

    Ouch, that’s a mouthful.

  4. For the past 40 years my Grandparents have subscribed to the Telegraph, their account now is the same one they had when they lived in Macon before they moved back to Milan in 1973. I grew up with that paper in my house because of that, seven days a week.

    They mostly read the Obituaries.

  5. Ambernappe says:

    Based on the report before me, it appears a partnership has been formed between the old and the old. This gives depth to the perception that repetition of the same old progressive dogma makes it true. More inconsequential reporting of the superficial.

    It’s obvious that the addition of Ronald Daniels to the front page of The Pundit threw the old media into a frenzied panic and caused them to mount a united front, heh?

  7. Game Fan says:

    Corporate consolidation in disguise? Joined together by the…..ADVERTISERS??? Less real local news and more… “excitement”? So wonder how many local columnists will get the boot. The “old media” thinks they can compete with the “new media” by consolidating and cow towing to the “corporate sponsors”????? AAAHAHAHAHHAAAAAAA!!!!

  8. Doug Grammer says:

    I’d be more impressed if they developed an interactive website that could break news out by geographical area, or leave it all lumped together so you could see what the top news stories are across the state and not just in metro-Atlanta.
