Op-ed: “Old Media” being killed by digital age

Water seeks its own level and birds of a feather flock together, isn’t that how it goes?  We all have different figure prints, no two are exactly alike.  That is a system that works as well as can be expected.  I write opinions….some agree some do not.  I know that when I write it, I still put the words onto to paper, those who do not agree are more than welcome to their own opinion, in fact they too can publish their own thoughts, I am sure NIT would publish it…if it made sense.

Dissension is created when someone disagrees with what you have said, and their reasoning can be quite varied. For example when I write about Eric, I often will have counter opinions from those who cannot handle the truth and do not like it when I apply it.

The proof is in the pudding…isn’t it? If you can prove otherwise concerning what I write I welcome it, but if you cannot, then you’re just blowing smoke.  I believe there is not one person who reads this site would want to go back to the one letter (300 words) every three weeks…maybe if they agree, if not they just don’t print it.  Oh you also need to declare who you are and where they can reach you.  Now what do you think?

There is a certain segment living here who want things the way they used to be…lots of luck there. They miss the security blanket offered by the Globe Gazette… sometimes called “Old Media.”  Its over so get over it.  We are in the digital  age and there is no going back, this is the way young people are growing up. A noted newspaper man has been quoted as saying that in 15 to 20 years there will be no printed newspapers; I heard him say it on public radio. He was the former editor or publisher of USATODAY.  Every one will buy their newspaper of choice online.

If you live your life right there is nothing to fear, but if you want to dance you have to pay the fiddler……  Welcome to today.
