Hm. I'm thinking we need a trope for how established media have tended to portray any New Media that threatens their position of power. The classic case is, of course, television going all out to show its viewers that the Internet is the root of all evil with all manner of scare stories during the late 1990s and into the early 2000s. As the Internet became part of mainstream culture, the cycle refocussed on new uses of the Internet, like Myspace.com.

So... New Media Are Evil?
