A likely prediction

Peter Newcomb at Forbes offers several predictions on media for the coming year, including this one that especially caught my attention:

The Big Trend
Paralyzed by its introspective hand‐wringing over sourcing, ethics and accuracy, print journalism will cede even more turf to its electronic peers. While that’s good news for bloggers and aggregators, the biggest incursions will be made by popular portals such as Yahoo! and Google, which will begin hiring entire teams of reporters to create their own news divisions.
I’m not sure this would be the “right” thing for Yahoo! and Google, but greed being what it is, I wouldn’t vote against it.

NOTE: Forbes is another media company opting for the full page ad BEFORE users can get to the content via links from other sources. We’ll see a lot more of this, methinks.
