The New York Times could employ four reviewers of equal standing to cover openings in rotation. It has since been pointed out to me that the paper's website allows readers to post their own reviews. That is all well and good, but the day that quotes from those lay persons appear in newspaper ads or scream down at the public from posters is the day I believe that this gambit is a true correction of the Times's autocratic power.

Would it suit if the reviews are taylor made? Guess we'd have to wear it...

(Actually that quote leapt out of because of recent debate around the traps. It's largely about Broadway, state of, more than the state of media.)
