Email will live as a distribution method of content until A) facebook allows users to have greater control of their feed. For instance, when I like a page, to my knowledge there is no way of assuring that every post from that page will appear in my top news feed. B) twitter becomes a lot less noisy and I don't have to worry about desired posts getting lost in the mess.
In my current user experience, email is the only method were I can guarantee I will see a post. Some blogs I can live with missing a post or two-- so I follow or like. Other blogs, I stress over missing a word so prefer these blogs make it to my inbox because that's the only guaranteed way I know i'll see it.
However, these are blogs that typically post once a day, if that. The only way I'd give my email to a publication that produces a much higher frequency of content is if I was certain they wouldn't take advantage of their access and slaughter my inbox. I wouldn't tolerate more than one email a day and would prefer it be a roundup of top stories that received the most attention.

This is very similar to this post I read the other day on HN that was suggesting this lower standard of SV was a result of the consumption of tech media and was trying to create a blog to differentiate startups that get coverage because they are doing dynamic things and startups that get coverage solely due to the name attached-- covering the prior. Kind of like a filter to create a higher standard within the space. No one voted it up but it seemed interesting.
