A new calibration of the relationship between print and digital media, the Internet and paper, the whole media setting, is provided in the Pew Research Journalism Project report, "State of the News Media 2014," just released. In an early take on the 14th such annual report, Jennifer Saba, of Reuters, notes that "A new wave of funding by technology-savvy investors into U.S. media companies is driving momentum in journalism." She and Pew mean, of course, Amazon's Jeff Bezos and eBay's Pierre Omidyar.

Bezos purchased The Washington Post from the Graham family last year and Omidyar announced his intention to build an independent media organization. Traditional media continues under stress, no news there. But the new Pew report provides additional calibration on where things are headed for the media — if not quite optimism, "perhaps hope."
