"We live in a communications desert. How can this be, you, say? Our 24/7 news cycle delivers information by the millisecond to our living rooms, ears, laptops and cell phones. Every day, Americans are barraged with millions of words, bytes, video clips, posts, emails and tweets via thousands of newspapers and digital channels. Yes, we are drowning in a blog-YouTube-Google-Facebook-fueled world. Yet paradoxically, in this 'revolutionary' media age, our cities are parched for information and news coverage with context and quality." (04/05/11)
