Another great column from Jay Rosen over at PressThink. Particularly insightful are his summations of a report from the former head of MSNBC. Rosen finds Merrill Brown refreshingly truthful about the business:

What I mean by truthtelling is passages like this: “the future of the U.S. news industry is seriously threatened by the seemingly irrevocable move by young people away from traditional sources of news.” And: “Newspapers have no clear strengths and are the least preferred choice for local, national and international news.”
