Can newspapers survive?


Michael Kinsley, ex of both print and Slate, thinks while the physical newspaper may be on the way out, the brand will remain and may even thrive. I’d agree with that; the NYT and the Guardian are my first stops on the web every morning. Still, I’d miss the newspaper; I still make a ritual out of picking up the Saturday Globe and Mail, and while you can sip coffee and enjoy the news on your laptop from the comfort of your couch…it ain’t the same thing.
