OUR VIEW: Many newspapers are down but not out

-A A +A
By The Staff

Before we get back to your calls, we just want to say that our goal for this editorial is 20 bucks. One measly Andrew Jackson, a couple of teensy weensy pledges and we’ll resume our regular editorializing.

I hear the phone ringing already. But before we go to the phones, I want to remind you…

The good news about the current national obsession with the declining fortunes of newspapers is that nobody has suggested a PBS-style fundraising campaign as a solution.

But there has been some good analysis, excellent self-criticism and even some creative ideas for how to fix the downward spiral of print news media.

Although this particular newspaper has a share of troubles in a time of change and hardship for many, we also have a few strengths that persuade us that we may be able to survive the double-whammy that has hit our industry.

Small town local papers appear to be among the most resilient markets. Add the blessing of a community of top-notch earners, backed by relatively stable federal funding, then subtract the handicap of Los Alamos’ small commercial sector. Many papers would be happy to change places with us.
