Dan, do you agree with him?
P.S. I’m not even sure what he’s really saying… re: “if cable and satellite broadcasting, as well as the Internet, had come along first, newspapers as we know them probably would never have existed.”
well… yeah, hard to argue with the “newspapers *as we know them” part…” (that would be true for any innovation) but what does he mean by “newspapers”? the particular form of delivering of info (print on paper)?; the kind of topics covered? manner of presenting the news? without making clear what he means, his statement sounds empty to me… D.
... may have always sold
from as business perspective… as in… you couldn’t have possibly made money by selling printed newspapers if such forms of delivering info as cable, satellite and internet would have been around first…?
still, I’m not sure that’s true… it seems to assume a bunch of things: that everybody would have had access to cable/satellite/internet when they wanted to access news; that in all circumstances they would have preferred this form of delivery to print on paper etc.
