Subscribers can download the PDF version at http://www.jackmyers.com/commentary/jackmyers-think-tank/Sixty-Years-of-Daily-Newspaper-Circulation-Trends.html?c=n. CMI suggests we are coming to “the end of the ‘Century of Mass Media’ and we now are in an era in which new and old media are competing for our attention, in which we have the luxury of both the “mainstream” and the “alternative”. But we have to consider what the alternatives might look like if, or when, the mainstream is gone or much diminished.” Click here to download the full CMI report.

An IAT can reveal your real, inner feelings about any topic from race or mental health to pets in the home. It does this not from your actual responses, but by interrogating to the millisecond speed of your replies on your computer. An IAT can potentially lay bare previously unknown insights about you.Read More
Why should humans own all the world’s copyrights? The question is prompted by a photograph that’s made worldwide news. In Indonesia, a female crested black macaque monkey picked up a camera owned by photographer David Slater.
