The end of the shared media moment
Berkeley Breathed on the reaction to his return to Bloom County:
“There is no media that will allow a Charlie Brown or a Snoopy to become a universal and shared joy each morning at the same moment across the country,” Breathed continues. “Maybe the rather marked response to my character’s return is a reflection of that loss. A last gasp of a passing era.”
It’s an interesting observation – merely weeks after Apple has tried to resurrect that shared media moment with the arrival of Beats 1.
