Newspaper Survival Guide

Posted By on Thu, Oct 5, 2006 at 9:33 AM

Here's what John Hughes at the Christian Science Montitor has to say about how newspapers can survive in the digital age: Be tech savvy and ethically sound.

The busy viewer deserves a trusted newspaper to give credibility to theinformation he or she finds on the Internet. I love The New Yorkercartoon of the dog typing away at the keyboard of a computer. He issaying to his doggy friend sitting beside him: "On the Internet, nobodyknows you're a dog."

Of course, you could make the argument that the busy viewer deserves a trusted source to give credibility. That doesn't have to be a newspaper.

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence.

Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
