Nipples Fire Up Media Backlash

Media for Democracy gets a mention in this brief roundup by Dan Rubin at the Philadelphia Inquirer. Also appropriate attribution to friends Jonathan Rintels, Jeffrey Chester and MediaChannel "blogger in chief" Danny Schechter. The takeway on this:

The year 2004 drove a few more well-placed nails into the coffin of Big Media. Newspaper circulation continued to decline, as did the television networks' audience -- viewers turned to cable stations. Radio lost listeners and stars such as Bob Edwards and, soon, Howard Stern to satellite upstarts. The technologically savvy programmed their iPods and TiVo boxes to create their own programming playlists and TV grid.
