“Saving” Newspapers February 15, 2007

Posted by David Card in Media.

Shafer vs. Rattner on the bidness of newspapers. I’m with Shafer, who says of Rattner:

    Rather than telling his patient to take some very strong medicine or change its rotten business habits, he concludes that the case is hopeless and that “perhaps it’s time to think about new models for the news business.”

    …So, please, let’s call off pledge weeks for newspapers…If dailies can’t make it on their own, they deserve death.

However, I’m still worried about who’s going to pay for long (-ish) form investigative journalism. It sure isn’t TeeVee or the Internetz.
