When Boomers Lose Control of the Media

This was sent by pal on the age beat:  Jack Shafer, Slate’s media critic, has an interesting piece dissecting how we’ll know when Baby Boomers have lost control of the media.  It’s an interesting read, focusing mainly on the changing of the guard in pop-culture references slipped into stories and headlines.  Fits well into recent discussions. It contains this prescient piece of wisdom: “When the shocker appears in a New York Times headline, we'll know the boomers have been vanquished.”
