The twilight of daily journalism

http://www.jewishjournal.com/blog/item/the_twilight_of_daily_journalism/

More from the Department of Dying Newspapers, I just got around to reading this article that appeared in the New Yorker two weeks ago, and I can’t think of a better set of Cliff’s Notes on what’s happening to my industry. Here’s a choice nugget near the top:

Few believe that newspapers in their current printed form will survive. Newspaper companies are losing advertisers, readers, market value, and, in some cases, their sense of mission at a pace that would have been barely imaginable just four years ago. Bill Keller, the executive editor of the Times, said recently in a speech in London, “At places where editors and publishers gather, the mood these days is funereal. Editors ask one another, ‘How are you?,’ in that sober tone one employs with friends who have just emerged from rehab or a messy divorce.” Keller’s speech appeared on the Web site of its sponsor, the Guardian, under the headline “NOT DEAD YET.”
