Media chaos ahead?

I heard an excellent piece on NPR's "All Things Considered" yesterday - dealing with the potentially catastrophic future for the media system in America. Bob Garfield, the co-host of NPR's weekly On the Media, presents a piece titled "An Impending Period of Transitional Chaos for Media." In it he notes that "Network television audiences are down as cable, the Internet and a host of other new technologies emerge; and marketers are shifting their dollars accordingly." The thesis: "The media world faces an interim of chaos before a new order is determined." Listen to it and be afraid, be very afraid!
