What Was The Media’s Biggest Misstep in 2009?

newsday1022222.jpgAs much as we’d like to place the blame of the news publishing industry’s downfall entirely on the economy, it has to be said that not every organization made the best choices during the tough year. Between Rupert Murdoch‘s flame-war with Google (and his subsequent move towards Microsoft’s Bing search engine) to Condé Nast‘s closing of the award-winning Gourmet magazine, we want our readers to tell us: what do you think were the biggest blunders in the media this year?

This is all part of our year-end poll series where we’re asking our readers what you think about the biggest people and events of 2009. Stay tuned next week, where we’ll reveal our thinking behind these choices, our own top picks and our poll results.
