    Unfortunately, my place panicked and already has ruined its product.

    Perhaps he should've said newspapers reach new depths.

    Not sure there are too many journalists out there who wrote their own obituary.

    I see his point, though he could have phrased it better. There are a lot of journalists who are afraid of the changes needed to survive. The resistance to blogging, etc.

    Coming from the man who brought us "fair and balanced" and The Page 3 Girl:

    Effects of the Page 3 girl

    The decision to make the page three girl topless was made while Murdoch was out of the country - but it’s unlikey that he disagreed with the effect it made: sales rose 40% to 2.1 million copies within a year.

    If you’ve wondered why you’re unable to buy The Sun in North America, the page three girl is one of the reasons. In Britain it’s legal for women as young as 16 to pose topless, which is considered underage in the US and Canada.

    I found this to be very interesting.

    Interesting. Murdoch comes along and declares the future of newspapers to be sound and there are like 6 comments on this thread.
    Good news apparently does not sell on this board, either.
