The revolution will be digitized

All the fearmongering in the mainstream media about Brexit, Donald Trump, fake news, Islamophobia, climate change, and the imminent end of civilization isn’t really about any of those things. It’s actually the death rattle of the MSM. The digitization of the news media is breaking up the corporate and ideological cartels that have dominated journalism for decades, writes Ryan Rados. They are about to be supplanted by hordes of citizen journalists who will diversify and democratize the news via the Internet. None of them will get rich but really, who should you trust to tell you the truth, a million-dollar-a-year network news anchor or a gumshoe reporter earning fractions of a cent per click?
