Politico takes a look at the Media Bubble that gave us the false impression that Trump couldn’t possibly win. The trends that created that bubble are still in place and the movement of jobs away from local news organizations to the Internet has done nothing to shrink it.
My local newspaper has shed jobs, pages and local content all the while pretending this isn’t happening. Whenever I actually pick up a copy to read I’m always struck by how much of the content is sourced from USA Today and other national news organizations. All of which are based securely in the Media Bubble.
