This is becoming a worrying trend. In the UK, I heard this week that the new midi-sized "Guardian" newspaper has less space for the arts and that this has already had an impact on the number of dance reviews.
I'm afraid that the mass media web has little to be proud of. I once spent some time searching for possible partners with the main e-zines. Foe instance, at one time, Tiscali had serious arts coverage. But I found that there was none - only specialist sites like CD.
Any other examples of reduced coverage?
I admire the measured tones of the DTW letter, especially the way it emphasises the excellent coverage provided by VV to date.
