Jesse Brown Takes a Jab at Print Newspapers

TVO's Jesse Brown took a playful but mostly sincere jab at print newspapers and those advocating for their salvation - by picking apart a Toronto Star on the most recent Search Engine video podcast.

Brown picks on the print newspaper's woes - including excessive and intrusive advertising, news story lag, and use of wire service in place of original journalism. The thing is, I'm not all that convinced that web-based journalism isn't prone to the same trends and annoyances.
