The Media is Thriving

Since there's nothing like being a little contrarian, Rick and I have decided to start The Media is Thriving in response to the ever so popular The Media is Dying. Instead of tracking the death of the media industry, we plan to track it's success. As Rick explained in his introductory blog post, "I also think that a LOT of internet people have no concept of just how much money goes through the media companies. Time warner collected THIRTY FIVE BILLION DOLLARS last year. Even if you take out their insanely large, profitable, growing cable division, their revenues are still 4 times Google's. It's madness." So there you go. Follow The Media is Thriving on Twitter and if you've got any tips, email, comment or @ us.
