thanks for saying this ...

a deeper truth is that one doesn't need any news at all, but only mystics would agree with me ...

and what is news? mostly a cry for help that no one ever answers .. it is what went wrong today, ignoring what went right .. a bias tilted towards negativity and hopelessness ..

less is surely more ..

I think it's important to make a distinction between newspapers, the physical medium and newspaper reporters, the individuals who hit the pavement or make the phone calls that uncover the little discrepancies, the small abuses of power that every once in a while turn into stories we all really should know about. Sure, there is a lot of content in newspapers that is essentially filler. But, I don't think it is a stretch to say that without newspaper stories, there would be even less substance to television news and certainly bloggers wouldn't have much to write about. If all the stories that originated in newspapers went away tomorrow, it would have a catastrophic effect on the news ecosystem. This is not to romanticize what reporters do -- though many of them do it quite well -- it is, as much as anything, a factor of the sheer number and distribution of them around our country. (Though that coverage is getting more sparse by the minute).

That being said, I have no doubt that newspapers as a physical medium will seem quaint before too long. My only hope is that there will still be a role for the reporters who do the news gathering grunt work that doesn't seem to be appreciated.

Keith,
Good points, but I'm talking about something more general than the question of what would happen if newspapers went away. The effect on the news ecosystem would be deleterious, but my point is that we should welcome it-that the news ecosystem itself is corrosive of democracy and that without it, we would be better off, or at least not any worse off than right now. Perhaps I take the analogy from the in-depth baseball blogs too far, but their success has zero relation to whether or not this morning's sports page exists. I suspect the same thing will/would happen in news with the appearance of new business models. Politico might be News Future 1.0 in this sense. There are other new ventures out there on the horizon too that will continue to proliferate.

The comments seem to be talking all around the question but not addressing the heart of the entreprenurial debate. The issue should be: How to get state capital around the financial logjam and into the hands of the entrepreneur.

First of all thanks a lot for the great and informative entry. It is really useful and cool to me, I will recommend to my friends. thanks

What sculpture is to a block of marble , education is to the soul.

us together as democratic citizens? The main reason daily news, as manifested by newspapers but also by other sources, might corrode democracy is that it telescopes our gaze almost completely on the here and now. The media has long been obsessed with exploring the present-centered weltanschauung of modern life

To offer a different perspective, I'm not sure that economics of transportation will ever drive us to become Locavores. Oil is but a sparse fraction of the cost of transport and distribution.
To me it is all about community and a healthy lifestyle. I would much prefer buying local even at higher cost because of the value to our community. And if we can get local volume over the threshold of economies of scale, then will be self sustaining. Unfortunately, Locavorism today is really on the fringe. In business terms, we need more market share - and then the economics will work too.

Strategy is something; execution is everything
