    Liberally Correct brings its great saga on the media to a close with a discussion on the oldest form of journalism: print. Eric Mack and Brett Madsen discuss the work that the New York Times and Washington Post have done in the aftermath of the election and how very few outlets seem to have the capability to do the type of investigative reporting that can make a difference. They also discuss the transition from consumption of print news via a morning newspaper versus a continuous 24/7 feed that is frequently consumed in an aggregated form.
