Media (Mis)Management

Philadelphia Magazine has a nice piece on the thought processes newspaper management (read business types) bring to newspapers (as in lack of the same). Check it out at 1978 CALLED. IT WANTS ITS NEWSPAPER BACK. The kicker says it all: "All big-city newspapers have been hurt by the rise of the Internet, declining ad sales, and an economy gone south. But the brain trust at the Inquirer and Daily News has a deeper problem: They think we still need their papers to find out what’s going on."

And on the Journal Register Co. front, bye-bye Hershey weekly. Hello, Hummelstown Sun. No new developments seen in Mt. Airy for the Times-Express or in Germantown for the Courier, though.
