The Press Deathwatch and Value of Content

Print More

What I’m working on is an explication of how we can never afford to pay for the kind of news, hard news, that our democracy needs. However, we can produce this news, distribute it, but we have to think outside the norms of money and the economics of scarcity and the Industrial Age. More to come…

But if a comprehensive array of real news is to be part of the picture as well, the time will soon arrive for us to put up or shut up. Whatever shape journalism ultimately takes in America, make no mistake that in the end we will get what we pay for.
