IS THERE A FUTURE FOR TV NEWS?

Does news have a future? 

Particularly television news?

I think so, but not at the rate it is moving now.

Take a look at the ads for TV network news - Depends, Cialias and that thing where your bladder runs around after you.

Depressing? 

You bet.

The most depressing part is that the audience is dying - literally. And no one is going to replace them.

This is tragic because journalism is important.  Video journalism is particularly important.  Video is such an incredibly poweful medium for journalism, it would be a real tragedy if it were to die.

And it is kind of Dead Medium Walking right now.

Is there a way to save it?

Or better yet, to resurrect it as something new and vibrant?

Maybe.

So here's an idea.
