Do These Count as Newspaper Blues? July 30, 2007

Posted by David Card in Media.

I was a little skeptical, at the time, though I said AP’s “asap” attempt to aggregate news for a younger audience was worth watching. Well, not any more.

And, apparently, even online pure-plays — Monster unloaded its print business last summer — that are killing the newspaper industry are hurting.

Meanwhile, Fortune wonders if the Washington Post can survive. In the headline, anyway; the story is reasonably positive. And though it says Internet revenues aren’t growing fast enough to cover print declines, the story’s charts tell a different story, at least for the last few years.

In the Fortune piece, Warren Buffet seems to want to re-invent New Century Network. Puzzling.
