Although the survey phrasing is imperfect, I think this one slide says it all.


  1. What caught my eye was a distinction among the options between “other local media sites” and “other local internet sites.” How do you interpret that?

  2. I interpret it as a darned poorly worded survey question.

  3. Just finished the slides.

    It is really time to start over, from scratch. The legacy overhead in costs, old ideas, inadequate bureaucracies and entrenched employee self-interest is an insurmountable disadvantage to a new effort done right.

    Somebody tell Frank Daniels Jr to call me.

  4. You are probably right, although I wondered if they were attempting to distinguish between local media sites and other local media sites like blogs or internet-only media.
