Print business dying, film at 11

So much for idealism. Here I always thought it was the news that sold the paper. Evidently I’m a naif. I recently learned that it’s everything but the news: it’s the sports, weather, home and parenting tips, and the TV listings that make the sales. In fact, NY Magazine is expanding its on-line TV coverage.

So, again, let me get this straight: TV Guide is pracyically dead, but NY Magazine, which could conceivably be covering lots more important things (especially with the local papers cutting their staffs), is picking up the slack, is that about right?

  • A reluctant welcome

    It’s no secret what’s going on the field of print journalism. It’s going into the crapper. I wonder if Mr. Internet realized this would happen when he invented the World Wide Web. Regardless, the situation is here and we’re stuck with it. The purpose of this blog is to blow off a little steam, and I invite my fellow ink-stained wretches to join in with their own tales of woe or triumph. Maybe this will turn into a nice little support network. Questions? Suggestions? E-mail me at worriedjournalist(at) gmail(dot)com.
