How long has the newspaper been imploding?

Judge for yourself. Here’s a great article from the Washington Post — published four years ago.

The author was right on target — the only thing is, he couldn’t predict that papers would all keep trying to do the same old things they’ve been doing for a century . . . but completely failing at them today.

The bow ties didn’t get it then, and they won’t get it now.

Heading for extinction.

You can send in the clowns, now! Oh, don’t bother — they’re here.

One thought on “How long has the newspaper been imploding?

  1. And as the new ideas are presented by the new excited employee and accepted and given the reign to start up, how long will the enthusiasm maintain? How long before the focus wavers to another direction and how can any company adapt quickly and effectively? Invest in bicycles!After the oil and auto industry dry up and the highway infrastructure crumbles, there will only be bicycles.
