Go Crazy, Folks!

Ha ha.

UPDATE: Ha ha. Enjoy that raise, T.J.


  • In my other blog, I already dealt with the Times ad shutdown; it's unlikely to be permanent. GM needs the Times much more than the Times needs GM's ad money.

  • What about the 5.5% drop in circulation? The Times need readers more than readers need the Times.

  • What you've really got to love is the Times' flunky's attempt to attribute the lost to poor marketing strategies. It couldn't possibly have anything to do with poor reporting. And forget about the rise of competitors (read: web news outlets & blogs) who combine higher quality, more convenience, and lower prices than the Times offers.

  • The drop in circulation has nothing to do with GM. GM is not a subscriber. It has everything to do with the LA Times being replaced by the Internet.

  • The problem for all of us is that Internet bloggers can't replace journalists. We need someone actually out in the field covering stories and interviewing news subjects. Eventually you have to hope that a competitor realizes an opportunity and tries to take advantage of the Times' weaknesses. This might seem like a stretch, but if Rupert Murdoch can create a successful fourth broadcast network from scratch, then why can't someone break into the LA newspaper market?
