More on newspapers' woes
The World's latest technology podcast has a good piece from the BBC that delves into the reality of newspaper's woes. Lauren Rich Fine, Philip Meyer, Rupert Murdoch are among those interviewed or quoted from earlier remarks. ProPublica's editor contrasts how little of a typical newspaper's expenses go to getting the news to how much of his organization's do.
It's about halfway into the MP3 podcast (right after a piece on the increasing use of human waste for fertilizer -- really, the host claims no connection). This would be a good audio piece to have students listen to to get a good overview of things.
(Thanks to Bob Wyman for the pointer.)
