Howard Stern just said that he plans to have a show on Sirius right after his show with the audience criticizing what they just heard.
That’s new. Imagine if a paper ran just one page every day with critiques from its readers. And, no, I don’t mean letters to the editor, picked like ripe apples and all shined up. I mean handing control of that page over to outsiders to say what they will about what we do. Imagine if CBS News gave the public its say on its show. It’s not unlike comments on a blog. With speed that often amazes me, you’ll join in and skewer or even agree with what I’ve said in this post. Apart from the trolls — whom everyone knows are trolls (except for the trolls themselves) — what’s to fear? Howard’s not afraid. What about you, big, old media?
