Same as it ever was

Great post over on Brain Pickings about what’s wrong with media today — based on an editorial from 1923! The Death of the Editor and the Rise of the Circulation Manager, by Maria Popova, looks at today’s media issues such as SOPA, copyright, and content farms through the lens of an article titled “Our Changing Journalism”.

It’s interesting to see New York Globe editor Bruce Bliven decry the onrush of modern technology and it’s affect on journalism and the media. Of course, he’s referring to “the telephone, high-speed rotary presses, stereotyping, typesetting machines, color presses, rotogravure, [and] the electric telegraphic typewriter.”
