The Ongoing Decline in Media/Entertainment Revenues

Chris Anderson’s Long Tail looks at the ongoing decline — is meltdown too strong a word? (Probably not) — in the mainstream entertainment/media:

All the relatively new competition has whittled down any single media’s former dominance:

-Internet sources of information, data, news, and entertainment is stealing readers from newspapers and magazines;
-Satellite, P2P, and iPods are cannibalizing Radio

Is it any wonder that the pie keeps getting sliced increasingly thinner? And that’s before we address the issue of a general decreased quality (though there are exceptions) brought about through profit maximimizing moves.
