I took the excerpts from Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism “State of the News Media 2010” report and inserted them into wordle to get a word cloud of the text. It’s interesting that “pay” comes up as one of the dominant words. I am guessing it will be a theme for this year.
Here are a few takes on the report for you to digest:
- “Pew: Online News Users Don’t Want To Pay—Or Look At Ads” – PaidContent
- Most Online News Readers Use 5 Sites or Fewer, Study Says – The New York Times
- State of the Media, By the Numbers – Columbia Journalism Review
- The State of Newspapers? Think of Sand Falling in an Hourglass, Pew Report Says – Editor and Publisher
