Wow. I was going to rant on this myself but I'm not sure what more I could add to this. Great post. In a nutshell, the newspaper industry seems to be driven by a combination of self-inflated ego and fear that their power and license to print money is slipping through their fingertips. I'm tempted, in fact, to borrow a page from your "recovering" theme and equate it with an addictive illness, and note that first step is for the industry to admit it has a problem. Some paper have done this. Others are in denial, thinking print is just in a recession and will be fine once the economy gets better. And then there are those who're starting to grasp that they need to turn their business over to the communities they serve. That's the higher power. The groundswell (great book) is coming and no one wants to face it.
