Romenesko grabs a gem from PR Week:
“Suddenly, there are about 10 million more media critics than there were 10 years ago,” says National Journal media critic William Powers. “I find that exciting. It’s funny, there are all these bloggers and all these people who are instant media critics, and yet there are a lot of traditional news outlets that still don’t have anyone doing media criticism. …I think the conventional wisdom in journalism is that media criticism is an inside-the-business topic and it’s really just going to be read by other journalists. And I don’t think that’s true anymore.”
Media news is BIG news, although media reporters are few and far between.
