Quote of the Day

A journalist looks at newspapers and why they are losing journalists...

...if Google can successfully sell ads based on a mere list of headlines, shouldn’t newspapers be able to sell even more ads based on a database full of the best local reporting to be had in a given monopoly newspaper market?

Except that the nitwits running America’s big newspaper chains laid off or ran off many of their best local reporters weeks, months or years ago, you know, to cut costs.
