Election postmortem: New image needed

Check out this lead image at the Brookings Institution. Nice iconic image of a torn newspaper page .. nifty. Looks good job! header.png

Nothing wrong here, right? It’s the top image for this essay and it’s definitely a thought-provoking article.

But take a look at his chart further down the page:

covering_politics_in_a_post-truth_america___brookings_institution

Notice that Social Media and Cable New tops the list? Notice that Newspapers only rank 4th in the geezer group?

So why pick on newspapers? Shouldn’t the illustration/head be something more Facebookish/Twitterish? Anything that invokes social media? Or even cable TV news?

Sort of like they used on their index page:

Started out OK, but in the end, Newspapers getting a bum rap.
