Dinosaur media numbers are collapsing

Is Traditional Media Dying? The Numbers Indicate Just That

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World
So-called mainstream media is quickly falling out of the mainstream. I am attempting to push the title of mainstream media out of my lexicon completely, replaced by “traditional media,” “legacy media,” “dinosaur media,” or “establishment media.”
This is because in the near future, calling it mainstream media will be about as accurate as calling Wake Up World Nazi media (that is to say, ludicrously inaccurate).
In March, the well known news organization and cable broadcaster CNN dropped a shocking 50% in total viewers and a whopping 60% in the age 25-54 demographic (A25-54) over the total day according to reports from TVNewser.
On the other hand, during primetime they fell 21% in total viewers and 26% in A25-54 viewers compared to March of last year.
CNN was not alone in losing a huge amount of their viewers, as the infamous Fox News was hit hard in March and overall in the first quarter (Q1) of 2012.
For the month, Fox lost a whopping 17%, which further shows that the biased, misleading dinosaur media is on the way out, and fast.
This is hardly surprising to someone like me in the alternative media, as it reflects exactly what we have been seeing: a crumbling paradigm of media that serves corporate interests and is little more than a dog sitting on the lap of government.
Most notably, CNN completely ignored the freedom-crushing National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 here in the United States.
Sections 1021 and 1022 of this legislation, now known as the indefinite detention provisions,completely eradicate our right to due process by authorizing the indefinite military detention of anyone the government says might be a terrorist.
It seems quite clear to me that the American people – and people around the globe for that matter – are beginning to wake up to the fact that we have been, and are currently being, deceived by the media on a daily basis.
That is likely why people are rapidly fleeing the insanely misleading establishment media which continues to tell them that they should be concerned with the lives of celebrities, the non-existent Iranian nuclear weapons, while completely ignoring the poison in our food and water, the increasingly tyrannical governments of the world, and the completely fabricated so-called “War on Terror.”
The people of the world are likely increasingly turning to the internet and social media to get the real news, as it is highly doubtful that suddenly 50% of CNN’s total viewers stopped consuming news altogether.
This is very encouraging to me and it signals a bright future for humanity as people are increasingly resilient to the misleading coverage and false narratives given to us by the establishment media.
If this trend continues, soon enough the entire concept behind traditional media will have to give way to the quickly rising independent and alternative media, and of course this is an incredibly positive development.
While many things in the world seem to just be getting worse, it is great to see that there is a growing tide of awakened people around the world who are not only aware of what is going on, but are also turning off the indoctrination platforms known as televisions and instead getting the real news from likeminded people who care about our future as human beings.

TAP – Is this why they spend so much time hiding blog traffic?  I follow the google numbers given on posts, and find the numbers reported very differently in the various locations.  That suggests significant manipulation.  Facebook is also blocked off effectively to blogs like The Tap, and referrals don’t work properly, let alone readers are given a ‘malicious site’ warning before clicking through.  Would they bother paying trolls to sidetrack comments unless enough people were reading them?  The attempts to stop readers finding posts suggests that the departure from main media is accompanied by a surge in blog/alternative media readership.  Of course they will try more tricks to stop us as we move ahead.

Even with all the traffic-stopping measures, The Tap in October 2012 has done double the reader stats of October 2011, by October 11th.  No matter what they do, more readers keep finding us.  October 2010 was one fifth the numbers of October 2011.

    I have also noticed a lot of centrally controlled activity discouraging children and teenagers from using the computer, or using sites that they have not been directed to by a trusted adult or government agency.
    I agree that too much computer use is physically damaging, but this can be counteracted by healthy counter activites, and earthing mats or wristbands.
    Children are less indoctrinated than adults, they haven’t been under the spell for as long. Imagine if those young minds were out there tapping into all this stuff!
    It’s all done in the name of safeguarding children. Watch out for that word “safe”. It means locking something up.

    It would be interesting to see how long the average person could last not watching TV or reading a newspaper. I bet most people would crack up after a week or so.

    I stopped reading newspapers years ago and stopped paying my TV License years ago too… my head is a lot clearer now and, of course, the internet is there to find out whats really going on in the world – not the government propaganda narrative.

    Never watch the Tell-Lie-Vision:
