An interesting take on the state of 24-hour news networks, which I think we'd all agree are in a pretty poor state. From the author's point of view, they're going through a similar shift as search providers did in the late '90s/early 2000s.
But regardless of whether or not CNN is/could be "The Google of News" is irrelevant... because I'm pretty sure that Google is the Google of news. And that Google News in a televised medium isn't going to work well. But what I like here is the thinking that startup mentality, product/market fit, pivoting, etc. can play a big role in the world outside of startups.
The other interesting idea here is whether established, mainstream media can take a different approach to content curation to build their communities... inbound marketing meets content strategy!
