In March, the National Public Radio show, "Talk of the Nation," discussed the findings of the report, State of the News Media 2007, conducted by The Project for Excellence in Journalism. The report concluded that use of TV and radio for news has declined, and that Internet and radio use are flat. The only media channels that seem to be growing in usership are targeted community and ethnic newspapers and, perhaps, blogs.

I have been hearing similar things when I talk to students across North Carolina. I think word-of-mouth and community networks are passing lots of information along. It can be more time consuming but so effective!
