The future for expensive TV is bright

“The notion of linear television news is antithetical to the web – a distinctly non-linear, VOD environment. The notion of waiting until 6:30PM or 10PM to get the ‘breaking news story’ is simply a non-starter in the web world…technology has now consigned that model to the trash bin. But people still cling to it in the fear that the tidal wave of news and information uncontrolled and unedited is far too overwhelming for the average person.” #

That’s not to say that very very difficult and costly journalism wouldn’t come and take its place. I hope it does. And after talking to Clay I feel more confident that the market would in fact reward the producers for exceptional journalism for the mass market. Paying top dollar for important work seems real and justified. #
