What's that music I hear?

(Via the Drudge Report)

It might be the Fat Lady singing:

When Tom Brokaw, an old-time mainstream media figure in his own right, says he thinks print newspapers won’t be around in 10 years, that’s probably not a good sign for the industry.

While he may be correct about the bigger, national papers, I suspect that smaller, closer to the reader dead-tree outlets will still have a future. At the very least, they will have a chance to survive, since they're still close enough to their readers to understand the nature of the feedback they get.

What a comeuppance for the Legacy Media, if it happens. At least this time, we'll get to see if the dinosaurs realize they're dying out.
