The disaggregation of news in the Internet age has inverted this relationship, and made news outlets hypersensitive to the interests of their readers. This is a positive development. It’s good that the media covers stories that its constituents are interested in and want to read about. It’s good when news outlets are connected to the communities they serve.
I'm not so sure this is the case across the board. Our desires don't always serve us.
I sometimes do want gatekeepers to prevent me from hurting myself.
I don't know how to translate this into advice for the next generation of media, though.
