Not sure if you saw the Fox News internal memo from the day after the election that was obtained by the Huffington Post, but I have it up now on my website (www.minor-ripper.blogspot.com). How normally sane people can see this network as 'fair and balanced' is beyond my comprehension. It goes to show the power of slick propaganda. Isn't it ironic, though that the new English language version of Al Jazeerah is up and running on a Rupert Murdoch owned network in Britain? Hey, business is business I guess....

This is interesting.

We do seem to be seeing a definite splintering of consumer targeting due to increased competition. Is this a good or a bad thing, do you think?

There was a time when outlets (be they television stations or brick and mortar institutions) would do their best to cater to a broad base of consumers, the rule of thumb being that you made the most money appealing to the most amount of people.

Now, it seems, we are engaging in the compartmentalized consumerism model, at least in certain areas.

Good topic!
