Rathergate anniversary - 23 days and counting - progress report on the new media revolution

Hugh Hewitt cites a blog study that reveals the age and income levels of typical blog readers. The trends look good for blogging in both categories. Also:
Proof of the rising popularity of blogs is that about 50 million U.S. Internet users (about 30 percent of all U.S. Internet users) visited blog sites in the first quarter of 2005, up 45 percent compared with 2004's first quarter, according to the study.
emphasis added

Meanwhile, MSM/DNC news weeklies continue to suffer:
Despite recent major world events like the London terrorist bombings in July and the late December tsunami in Thailand, newsweeklies continued to struggle for the first half of the year. Time magazine, published by Time Inc., saw circulation remain flat for the period at 4.05 million, while newsstand sales dipped 3.4 percent to 157,217 copies. Newsweek saw its newsstand sales plummet 14 percent to 126,163, while total paid circulation rose 1.8 percent to 1.05 million

Who was it that recently announced the demise specifically of MSM/DNC weekly news magazines?
