A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

How to Save the News

It becomes a thing not worth knowing when everyone knows it already. And such is the case with the news media, especially newspapers, which "[E]veryone knows Google is killing..."

But as this article makes perfectly clear, Google, in fact, does everything it can to keep it alive, if not revivify it altogether...
The challenge Google knows it has not fully coped with is a vast one, which involves the public function of the news in the broadest sense. The company views the survival of “premium content” as important to its own welfare.
An excellent article worthy of your attention.
