Print Dead? It depends on who you ask.

I read my Dr Joe Webb on Mondays and found this:

"The New York Daily News didn't like it the other day when Time listed it as one of the ten most endangered newspapers. The other newspapers were Philadelphia Daily News, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Miami Herald, Detroit News, Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, Chicago Sun-Times, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, and Cleveland Plain Dealer.

After saying, “This is an irresponsible article that is totally unfounded and baseless... every so-called fact is wrong”, the paper fought back with an interesting answer. They're investing in more color printing capabilities. The response claimed, “The News just invested tens of millions in new printing presses that will enable The News to publish in color - on every page - starting in October” (just in time to cover the Mets winning the World Series, I hope)." . . .
With color on every page, the Daily News will become a daily magazine... don't they know what bad shape the magazine business is in?
Now I can get back to MSNBC, and watch Morning Joe.
