MediaVillage founder Jack Myers recently asked me to put forward three or so possible trends in news media that may increasingly come to fruition in the short-term future. The purpose of his request was to inform a presentation he will soon be giving regarding the future trajectory of the industry. After having relayed these observations to him, I will, in turn, share here a slightly modified version of what I told him earlier this month. With that said, given my frequent admonition about the risks inherent in any journalist or commentator seeking to forecast the future, I will refrain from asserting that these trends are, in any way, certain to continue; at present, however, each is either currently extant or, in the case of the third point I will raise, being actively debated as we speak, with possible action to follow. Here goes.
