I have bad news for you, people: mainstream media in Alberta is a trainwreck!
Of course, if you were paying attention, you already knew that.
I have worse news, though: Thanks to the current state of the Internet, the quality of the news you read or watch is not likely to get any better. Indeed, it may be on its way to getting worse. I'll explain why in a minute.
But don't get your hopes up about the online world democratizing communications and media in any meaningful way. Not unless someone with big money is prepared to make a charitable investment in real journalism.
