It’s Too Early for Newspaper Publishers to “Burn the Boats” | Newspaper Death Watch

Point/Counterpoint

  1.  “…subscription revenues nearly matched its advertising revenue.” / But this needs to account for decline in advertising revenue.
  2. “It isn’t crazy for publishers to want to milk the cash cow for a few more years.” / No asking if the customer wants to, um, get milked?
  3. “Successful executives are experts at learning to identify new opportunities and quickly discarding old product lines without looking back.” / Looking back and reviewing: Isn’t this what journalists do?
