"It would cost the Times about half as much money to send every single one of its subscribers a brand new Amazon Kindle instead of a physical newspaper each day." Over three months! [SAI]
Sorry, but until electronic media can find a consistent form of advertising, it's not going to beat out print. I know you guys would love to make everyone believe that your blogosphere is going to one day take down big bad print media, but the truth of the matter is this: Not everyone in the country has an internet connection or a several hundred dollar laptop or cell phone. Print is still the most convenient form of media on the go. No load times and no eye strain and tens of thousands of revenue for full page ads.
And let's see, print media doomed? Yeah, because the Huffington Post and this web site are sooo much more credible than the New York Times.
