Further evidence that newspapers are in trouble…

without comments

BusinessWeek has more column inches on the pressing subject of the decline of newspapers…  I wrote a bit about this last week, concluding that we should probably be more worried about what to do with all those big-brained reporters than about what to do with newspapers.  Jon Fine focuses a bit on the topic of what to do with the reporters, but (probably courtesy of not looking very hard) I haven’t generally seen much discussion about what to do with the reporters, which are the big asset in the newspaper biz.  And if we have had loads of discussion about how to fix the industry, then why are we still writing articles about the fact that the industry is dying?
