What he said


For many years, in most places newspapers basically had a monopoly. Owners and publishers and editors convinced themselves of their importance in civic life, an importance they simply assumed rather than proving it every day. Now that they face increased competition, they tend to cling their self-importance rather than trying to adapt.

I do worry that there won’t be a business model which will sustain quality local reporting, but I don’t weep for institutions which have long condescended to their readers.
