I agree with Om Malik that news media seems pretty superficial lately, so much so that "the whole stream is just noise". There is a positive side though.
Om Malik has deep insight into the world of the media and shares his thoughts about the media's pursuit of attention and revenue, regardless of the cost, in a recent blog post.
The Guardian's piece about the confessions of a police assassin in Manipur is an example of the kind of journalism I hope will survive into the future.
It would be great if Twitter stopped counting links in the 140 characters tweet limit but the prospect of that happening really doesn't justify the media frenzy. Really, people!
