With print media already in decline the latest Pew Forum poll can’t be good news for any of of the media formats. According to an article on HotAir, only 28% of those polled – felt journalists offered a lot of contribution to society. That was down 10% from their 2009 poll. I can’t say I am surprised. At some point the media decided to veer from reporting the news to becoming the catalyst behind driving the news.
