    yeah, ummm... perhaps you missed the headline, a crucial part of a story... you know, the beginning?

    NY Times publisher: Our goal is to manage the transition from print to internet

    what they mean is that everything is moving to their respective web sites... not that the NYT is failing.... nice try, though....

    print media across the board is conolidating and moving towards the web... here, have a read at any of 32 pages of inner-office memos:

    my god... what are you ever talking about? and please, if you have any self-respect, don't use lyrics by unabashed liberal Bob Dylan to underscore your goofy righty talking points...

    Newspapers are going under, it's no surprise that NYT would go first. It has nothing to do with ideology, they're just publishing in the most tech-savvy city in the country. The rest will follow. Which is too bad, really... I get my news from the internet, but I do love sitting down to lunch to a newspaper.

    all newspapers have their own website... they're not "going under"... they're merely transferring their medium to computers rather than news racks...

    call yourself whatever makes you feel better inside... i'd be distancing myself from the word "righty" also if i were one... nonetheless, your posting pattern makes it painfully obvious what you are.... and that you can't erase, jackass...

    i suppose you're correct, in the literal sense... the companies that operate them are still putting out a news product, i guess is what i meant to say...

    regardless, i've seen their quarterlies... newspapers still make money, hand over fist... when they say their not, they're lying just like MLB owners... it's just that computers have consolidated many aspects of the job, like many other industries, and layoffs are inevitable and have been for 15 years...

    Newspapers aren't going under but the industry is changing. The NYT is like a lot of papers across the country, they're transitioning into an internet based model.

    Drudge hates newspapers and takes great joy in predicting their doom. But what he doesn't understand is while eventually the print will go away, papers who are proactive and are willing to take the full plunge into cyberspace will prosper.

    I like blogs as much as the next guy, but keep in mind the average blogger sitting behind his computer with his giant beer gut and soiled clothing doesn't have the money to send himself to cover a Super Bowl, the Congress etc. and even if they did, there's zero chance the NFL or the US Govt. would give a credential to Joe Blow from Jersey. Blogs are great up to a point, but their access to events is and will always be quite limited.

    There's something about the demise of the newspaper that scares the hell out of me. Even george Jetson read the paper at home once in a while. I hope they keep doing the Sunday paper. My family spent Sunday morning together on the den floor tearing through the paper when I was a kid. We learned a lot and broadened our horizons as a family. My new family does it now. It's one of the things we always have made the time for to be together. One less thing for families to do together and it would suck if the Sundays go.
