Antique Media

“Antique media” was used in 1995, but was popularized in January 2006 by Thomas Lifson, a writer for and founder of the blog American Thinker. Lifson wrote ” Ask any member of the antique media” on January 19, 2006; his January 24, 2006 article for American Thinker was titled “The Antique Media.” The term has been frequently used on conservative blogs. “Antique media” means media of the past, such as newspapers and major television networks.
Similar terms to “antique media” include “deadstream media,” “dead tree media,” “dinosaur media,” “fringe media,” “lamestream media,” “past tense media” and “vintage media.”

That’s the kind of thing that surfaces only in antique media like newspapers.

By Thomas Lifson
There is so much poorly—checked blogger nonsense, out there. Unedited amateurs. Ask any member of the antique media. Many will only want to know what the Times says, and will draw their conclusions based on that Times data alone.

Let’s all give one collective “Awwwwww” for the newspaper industry that seems destined to go the way of the Dodo bird.
