the competing ‘state of the media’ stories
new york mag, april 15 issue:
story1-old media complaint “…the reigning giants have nearly always been caught napping by transformative change”
story2-new media solution "(Peretti from Buzzfeed)…doesn’t care whether a post is produced by a journalist or sponsored by a brand, so long as it travels."
Surely they did this on purpose…and then magazine #2
new yorker, april 8 issue:
story1-old media complaint cloaked in new media-fangledness
"lengthy investigative pieces are rare on all-digital platforms…"
"what are the new business models that will support it…"
"Vice’s biggest novelty is not its unruly journalistic techniques but it’s ability to make money in the Internet age."
Did they collaborate at all?
Did they think to make these two into one?
Or at least provide more comprehensive looks?
