Quote du jour II

I’m an optimist… The newspaper will not be around in twenty years. Let’s say ‘taps’ and move on. Just said by Drew Clark at the luncheon talk at the Berkman Center. It was a toss-off line, but along a very constructive vector.

    Jeez, that means that the News Press will be gone before Wendy McCaw gets through with the legal system. I understand that the NLRB decision alone could take another five years. She’s already been to the Supreme Court once (and lost).

    I wonder how much circulation has already decreased due to the Internet… I started to Google the answer but my 3G connection isn’t being very responsive at the moment.
