NYT’s “media blog” far from comprehensive

First things first: The New York Times’ “media blog,” The Media Decoder, isn’t really a blog at all, but rather a vehicle with which the Times links to its own articles. That said, I thought I’d have a look and see what percentage of the “media decoding” is related to online media, the internet, this “Twitter” thing I keep hearing about, etc. So I did an unscientific survey.

In the last week, The Media Decoder has published 22 posts. Of those posts, 4 were about the internet in some way (one was a programming note about the blog itself, two were links contained in “Speed Read” link-aggregation posts to stories in the Times, and one was an “end of a media era”-type piece).

So that’s…18%? And I’m being generous.
