PBS MediaShift | 5Across July, 2010 | Beyond Content Farms | PBS

Duration: 21:53 (Full Program)

The latest 5Across video show from PBS MediaShift is called "Beyond Content Farms" and is part of the week-long series at MediaShift on the rise of sites like Demand Media. These content farms or content mills are controversial in the media world because they produce massive amounts of content at low cost -- sometimes sacrificing quality. The show includes Studio One Networks' Andrew Susman, High Gear Media CEO Matt Heist, SF Dog Examiner Shelley Frost, Patch.com editor Ari Soglin, and Bleacher Report contributor Andrew Brining.
