Above is an article which I believe demonstrates digital determinism. Due to the small secluded region that is Colorado, they only had very limited modes of media. After the collapse of the major print newspapers, it brought rise to the use of online news websites. The demise of the print newspaper lead many of the investigative journalists that worked for the local newspapers to start online investigative websites. Even though several previous newspaper staffers have started online news sites, it hasn’t completely filled the void left by the death of the Colorado news print industry. Only through a conglomerate of university print media, traditional print, and the start-up news sites, have the news media in Colorado begun to cope with the future.Image
