But – and it’s a big but – I don’t know many folks who actually watch TV news programs anymore, whether they be on CBC or something else on the dial. Instead, we watch particular news clips on the Internet, we use Twitter as a news feed, and we scan Google News (or its equivalents) in the way that we used to scan newspapers. Oh, and a web site like this one – which is free, accepts comments, and is quite open about its biases – attracts 3.5+ million visitors every year. Which is more readers than most newspaper columnists get, I’m told.
I don’t know who Mansbridge’s successor will be. I’m not sure it matters, either.
