Future news sources

An essay how the influence of different news sources has changed over time is getting some criticism over at Pharyngula. PZ Myers mentions some problems with the claims in the essay. To be fair, though, the essay invites us to “join me on this (unscientific) tour of the last 210 years of information + 10 more years into the future” so it is isn’t claimed to be a rigorous study and much of it makes sense.

Fair or not, Blake Stacey helpfully suggests some modifications to the original graphical depiction of declining influence of different news sources, including a unit for the vertical axis.
