Could any United States’ Most well known Newspapers Get by the other Decades?
Several years back Eric Schwartz CEO of Google made a fascinating comment, he said he didn’t know when, but he thought that the Internet would eventually replace newspapers, or that newspapers would evolve into something different than they are today. Needless to say, no established business ever desires to die, and the major newspapers in the United States are experiencing a heck of a time making a profit. If it weren’t for the 2008 presidential elections with Barack Obama and his campaign spending over $700 million in advertising, many wouldn’t have made it this far.
Now the major newspapers are complaining about all sorts of things, including copyright infringement (in reality that’s been an excuse), and they’ve asked the Federal Trade Commission to appear into this, to offer them more protection, because the Internet is stealing their business. pool result May be the Internet and the blogosphere really stealing the industry from beneath the newspapers? Or can it be rather that the newspapers are failing continually to evolve in this new paradigm shift.
And it’s not merely in the United States, in France “The Le Monde” is making less and less annually, and finding fewer subscribers. Only the Wall Street Journal, and USA Today had increases in subscriptions this year, whereas the rest of the major daily newspapers, were losing money, and losing subscribers. These are the Wall Street Journal, there was a fascinating article by Max Colchester titled; “France’s Le Monde Seeks Sale.” Obviously, they saw the writing on the wall and realize they are in a losing game, and are therefore selling their newspaper, one with a rich tradition there.
This can be a worldwide issue apparently, not merely in the United States, this indicates rather unfortunate our government is willing to prop up yet another industry, or provide barriers to entry in a competitive marketplace, or even bail out the newspaper industry and other portions of the media, as they did Wall Street, the banks, and the auto industry. Currently, the main reason newspapers are losing subscribers is basically because their content isn’t so good anymore.
For instance, within my area I will get the LA Times, the New York Times, and the local newspaper, and read through them at the local coffee shop. I often find Associated Press filler, meaning this same article appears in every three newspapers. The reason being all the newspapers has cut their staff, and reporters rather than competing available for better editorial content. They’ve shaved costs to compete, and therefore they are no more giving quality content to the reader. Thus, they don’t deserve to survive.
In this instance, you ought to expect the readers to migrate to other news sources, such as the Internet. For the Federal Trade Commission to get involved in a competitive marketplace for news, means that they may set up barriers to entry online to save lots of a bunch of newspapers who don’t value their readers, continually reduce trees, and think they could get away with it. Further, the FTC is supposed to are a symbol of competition available, obviously not in this case. Please make an email of that.
