    I'm not sure if this is really really scary...or if it's salvation....
    What's next, The Washington Yahoo! Post? The San Francisco Craigslist & Chronicle?

    If it was more than just speculation, it would be interesting. Unless Google came out with something like Amazon's Kindle, buying a paper wouldn't be the smartest move.

    In 5-10 years though, a big online company may look at newspapers.

    I'm not sure the Sulzbergers would admit that the industry has changed.

    I think that is a great idea and it may save our industry. Google has money to burn and this would give them a direct pipeline to great news content. One of the big Internet folks is going to buy a major daily newspaper in the next 10 years, mark my words.
  7. Google should have jumped on the WSJ ...

    But why sell them the cow if we can just sell them the milk every day?

    And then they can just give the milk away for free, thus eliminating the need for the public to buy the milk from us.

    Just continuing the metaphor.

    That's the thing, though, Doc -- we have to start charging Google for the milk in the first place.
  11. you guys are hurting my head with your udder nonsense.

    Can you tell me in plain English, whether you think Google would then charge others for access to the NY Times if they owned it?
