Analyzing rapid change in the U.S. media landscape

Earl J. Wilkinson, blogging for INMA, offers a rather decent overview of what’s gone down in the U.S. media industry in the past 30 days, and what it portends for the future.

There are some missing elements in the piece –  readers’ potential reaction to the newspaper ownership models, for example – but Wilkinson deftly deconstructs some of the hyperbole surrounding the rapid change. And his summation really nails it: “New ownership will create an American market of experimentation that has not been seen before on this scale. It is exciting … and scary.”
