A hard time to launch any newspaper..

Considering the problems that Daily Ireland (and more drastically Daily View) have faced, Malachi O’Doherty believes that any newspaper launching at this time in the Northern Irish news cycle would have had a hard time of it. And it’s not just Northern Ireland. Peter Preston writing in the The Observer yesterday reckons that mainstream media outlets are in danger of missing out to the bloggers in terms of narrating the big events of our time. In the process they also be losing missing a powerful position viz and viz gathering growing online revenues.

    Is the Daily View dead? I haven’t seen it after about the first fortnight.

    The rise of blogging as a media force is directly proportional to the crap media that is written and broadcast in the USA by the WAPO, NYT and all of Murdoch’s slimey corporation.

    Does this mean there’ll be no job for me as a journalist if I graduate in 4 or 5 years time? 🙁
