Setting off dead-tree cannibalism

A weekend discussion about the wisdom of subsidizing newspapers with scarce tax dollars has created a minor firestorm at the Bowling Green Daily News that resulted in me being deemed an unperson (reference "1984" Orwell,George). (See this for the latest from the Daily Nooze.)

More on this from me here.

I've been very interested in the ongoing transformation of the news business. So I found a discussion about how big newspapers may start going out of business soon worth a read -- including a much more civil discussion in the comments section.
