: At the World Newspaper Congress in Korea, NY Times President and Publisher Arthur Sulzberger had this quotable thought:
Some mention the crisis of newspapers saying young readers no longer read print newspapers in the Internet era, but it’s not that the Internet is eroding the newspaper market but that newspapers have gained a new medium to deliver information.
Amen. It’s not about attracting the young or preserving the old but about expanding into the new. [Full disclosure — which I’ll make a time or two: I now work part-time for The Times Company.]
