Why the usual media is doomed

Because there's much more interesting stuff happening elsewhere.

Two examples:
1) Radio KoL [the station associated with Kingdom of Loathing] is currently doing a segment on zombie related songs. Somehow, I don't see that happening on the usual FM radio, or even XM.
2) The Order of the Stick is significantly better than any cartoon published in newspapers today. The latest ends a story arc that reaches the level of the best literature. Miko lost her status as a paladin, and has been trying to get it back. She could have gone evil, taking revenge for those that she thinks did this to her, but she didn't. Instead, she did what she thought the gods wanted her to do, sacrificing her own life. She hoped she would be restored, but it didn't happen. Ultimately, the only thing she got was that her horse would be waiting for her, who quite possibly was her only friend.
