    I got called on this on Monday night.  I had over some friends who are journalists and reporters and one them asked me why when I blog/email I almost always use the term "MSM", yet when I'm talking to people I always use the term "traditional media".  I didn't have a good response, though while I sad there with my mouth moving like a fish, their conversation pretty much rolled and tumbled around the points made in this entry.  When I finally got my wits about me, I admitted that I used 'MSM' because it's easier to type, whereas I say "traditional media" because I know too many people who work for newspapers, magazines, radio and TV stations.  I'm being nice.
