KRT Wire 07/02/2005 Internet coverage of Live 8 concerts blows away TV: "The Internet left cable in the dust. To put it bluntly, MTV sank and AOL soared."
What's that? You missed it? Have no fear, you can go and check out the whole thing on-demand at AOLmusic.com. Congratulations to everyone at AOL that made this a success.
This quote from David Bauer (AP), sums it up quite nicely... "Television seemed shockingly old-fashioned in how it followed Saturday's worldwide concert for poverty relief. AOL's coverage was so superior, it may one day be seen as a historical marker in drawing people to computers instead of TV screens for big events."
