Thank you, thank you
  • Thank you, thank you

We've been duking it out for 17 days now, trying to answer the age old question is journalism dead? Or rather, who's still hip and with it, New Media or Ye Olde Media? It's been a self-indulgent tournament, lots of low blows and crap talking, but in the end it was you, and your great taste that awarded the winner. If you desire a high intensity recap browse around here.

So Old Media is the winner. That's good, you all still like to read the paper on paper, dig into hard hitting investigative news and wash ink stains off your fingertips. You also like Town Criers, but we won't hold it against you. Your love for the good ol' days shone bright. We like that. But guys, COFFEE NEWS? Really? A 15th seed? I love an underdog but come ON. Was it the jokes? The trivia? Was it that Stephanie shamed you into voting for it? Did these people back you into a dark alley?


Anyway sportsfans, props for finally killing Upworthy (or should I say Downworthy, heyoooo), your other finalist and a 16th seed. That's probably the biggest victory of the tournament. Also, way to keep it fun, something tells me the New York Times wouldn't be this excited.


Until we meet next March....
