The media business looked like its was on the oust until our President started declaring certain outlets "fake news." And much to the dismay of many, there was a "Trump bump," in media, says TheStreet's contributing columnist Ken Doctor.
Even better, there was a "subscription surge," he says. Companies like the New York Times saw subscriptions pass 3 million for the first time and the New Yorker's subscriptions went up 230% in the last three months vs. the same period last year, says Doctor.
So now everyone is scrambling to get on the subscription bandwagon as the President, indirectly, is "making media great again."
Watch our full interview with Doctor and read his column here for all the details.
