Newspapers Not as Dead as You Think

We’ve blogged about proposals to save ailing print newspapers. Despite shrinking circulation and falling ad revenue, Daniel Gross doesn’t think print news is doing so badly. In a Slate column, he points out that “Every month, several million Americans pay to have newspapers and magazines delivered to their homes — a trick most online publications have yet to pull off.” Jason Kottke compares print newspapers’ sales strategy to Apple’s iPhone and Mac sales: “they have less market share but they make more money on each sale than their competitors by offering a premium product.” [%comments]
