How to Save Newspapers

Wonderful. A cogent justification of what I have been shouting in deaf ears for some years now - newspapers must go upmarket or die. 


  1. yes, we're all town criers now!

    (it's a bit like Python's Whicker Island, innit?)

  2. I used to suggest this all the time. But Meyer's faith in "investigative journalism" is misplaced. What passes for such in the U.S. tends to be so tendentious and partisan as to be worthless. It doesn't really investigate anything. It selects information that will advance an agenda decided upon in advance.
