It lifts it from major newspapers. Newspapers need to bolster their Web presence, get rid of the precious feature twaddle — and stop giving it away for free. Somebody’s got to pay for those reporters who actually dig out and write the news.

Chronicle which he headed is such a sucky no-news publication?

He cut a handsome, macho figure, and he was a brilliant self-promoter. But during those seven years, the Chronicle’s circulation dropped by 30 percent – a faster decline than any other major U.S. newspaper, and testimony to his abject failure as editor.

If I had $100,000 or $1 million in cash available, I’d use that money to buy CDs rather than a newspaper business. People who read small town weeklies and daily newspapers are mostly middle age or senior citizens. Once they’re gone, so goes the printed newspaper. Generation Xers get their news from the Internet

Thing is, he had opportunity to make substantive changes a few years back and he 1) first didn’t do it and then 2) did exactly what he spouts as mistakes by others… went for a glitzy “blow up” concept. Laughable!

Some newspapers are still making a lot of money, relatively a lot less than they were. So at some point you’re not making any money and in fact you’re losing a bunch of money”

Well, newspapers are due to change, because the world around us changes. But we shouldn’t be afraid of that, the world is in constant development, progression, and trying to stop that would be like trying to stop the end of the middle ages…
