I have been having a discussion with someone elsewhere on what constitutes the MSM, and where do people get their news from today. Being old school I still see the 3 big networks, PBS, the cable news networks and the printed media as the MSM. He contends Twitter, Facebook and many of the modern services should be considered MSM.
I realize that what is MSM to you may be a generational thing, although I think, with no numbers to back it up, that things like Twitter and Facebook while reaching large audiences aren’t yet considered “news” sources.
So what does “MSM” mean to you?
So where do you get your news?
Personally I get mine from all over. I still read the paper a few times a week, I listen to the radio, I watch PBS and cable news from time to time depending on what stories are out there. I lean a lot from forums like this one and others.
I find when you talk to people they tend to get info from sources they are comfortable with, that tend to reinforce what they already believe or expect.
