So... the new Did You Know? seems to have dropped its creeping yellow hoard approach to one focused more on media, which is a definite improvement. Still, I have to call bullshit on the second slide:
It is easier than ever to reach a large audience, but harder than ever to really connect with it.
Really? It used to be easier to really connect with a large audience? By what definition of "really connect?" This is true for the people who run television networks. Who else? Does The Economist find it harder to connect with a large audience than it did in 1990 when they used these slogans?
"The Economist - not read by millions of people."
"Never in the history of journalism has so much been read for so long by so few,"
Their global sales have doubled since 1997. Are they actually finding it harder to "really connect?"
I didn't make it any farther than that.
