How New Media (Twitter) TRUMPED Old Media (CNN)

Some reporters are calling it, David vs. Goliath. I call it New Media Beating the Pants OFF of Old Media.

With the Trend for Network Newscasters to be Celebrities, and rarely News Reporters, I had come to a conclusion about the Relevancy of Network News.

In a space where "timing" is everything, Network News dropped the ball a long time ago.

Most pundits have long realized is that Network News was just putting a pretty face on leading newspaper Stories from the New York and LA Times, and for a shot of geekyness: Wall Street Journal, Facebook and Twitter.

The Celebrity Rush to Twitter may have been it's Downfall.

CNN waited for the numbers to come in on the Iranian Elections and got punked good by a Lot-of-Twitters that did not.

Will this Speed-Bump on the road to New Media be a wake-up call for the Networks?

Sorry to say, I think that ship has sailed.

Sorry Bill Maher, but This Is Real-Time:
