I decided today I'm as over-the-top exasperated with journalism as Archie was with Edith when she seesawed her way through "The Change" (menopause).
Here's the money quote in that episode,
I'd like to say that to the news business: If you're gonna change, do it already!
Paywall or no paywall? Ad-supported or not-for-profit? Career journalists or citizen journalists? Multi-media or overwhelmed?
There's no question the established newspaper model is changing. (Note, though, that at least a majority of regular readers would miss their newspaper if it were to disappear.)
But while we journalists can feel the base shifting beneath us, we don't yet know how to regain our footing. That leaves some of us yelling, like Archie, "C'mon, change!"
Where's our rock, our Edith?
