Default Re: CNN- Poker seen fading in the US

I think it's quite significant that there're media stories about the falloff in poker. Whether it's true or not, media outlets like CNN form opinion. Their power doesn't neccessarily lie in reporting the truth, it lies in reporting what becomes conventional wisdom.

The zoo often gets a bad rap, but occasionally we get someone that knows what the hell he is talking about. I mostly agree with this. The big thing is that poker will not longer be as cool -- it will be seen as "kind of 2004." Hopefully it will still be kind of cool in pop culture, but unforutunately it will never be as cool.
