Comments on: Sirius: Rumors of our near death? It was the media’s fault http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/03/12/sirius-rumors-of-our-near-death-it-was-the-medias-fault/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Michael http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2009/03/12/sirius-rumors-of-our-near-death-it-was-the-medias-fault/#comment-356738 Wed, 18 Mar 2009 17:20:47 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=15286#comment-356738 Sirius will be around for a long time. Even with new devices coming out, and car companies installing devices to make listening to music easier, Sirius has the core infrastructure allowing them to produce new ways of “listening” to radio.

This stock is going back to $9. It may not be tomorrow, but once their debts are paid up, profits will be right behind. 20 Million Listeners are not going to just throw in the towel.

I will not listen to regular radio ever again. Commercials and too-talkative Djs make it unbearable. Sirius is worth every penny!

My best wishes to Mel and the gang, try to keep satellite radio on the air. The selection is excellent, its hi-fi sound, no commercials, and it costs only 35 cents a day.

On a cross-country drive, you can listen to anything you want in the middle of nowhere. No fiddling with discs, tapes or awful MP3 sound quality.

On a more serious note, a quick study of journalism around the world shows that its practitioners have been crawling pretty steadily upwards from a lack of credibility to about the most honorable that it’s ever been. There are fits and starts, ups and downs, but to say that journalism used to be an honorable and credible profession and it isn’t now is like looking at a timeline in a mirror.

Finally, it’s Sirius, not Sirious.

Thanks for contributing!

Get real, Mr. Adegoke. Your fellow media types lost their credibility long ago. You collectively destroyed what used to be an honorable and CREDIBLE profession. In my opinion, journalists rank right down there with lawyers, members of Congress, J-School Profs and wifebeaters. (OK, not ALL lawyers!)
