Newspaper Survival Guide

by

Here's what John Hughes at the Christian Science Montitor has to say about how newspapers can survive in the digital age: Be tech savvy and ethically sound.

The busy viewer deserves a trusted newspaper to give credibility to theinformation he or she finds on the Internet. I love The New Yorkercartoon of the dog typing away at the keyboard of a computer. He issaying to his doggy friend sitting beside him: "On the Internet, nobodyknows you're a dog."

Of course, you could make the argument that the busy viewer deserves a trusted source to give credibility. That doesn't have to be a newspaper.
