David Carr on a News Business That’s Bad for Journalists

The industry’s leaders knew more than 15 years ago that they had to do something about the digital missile heading their way. I was in some of those meetings at Gannett. But the investment and commitment was always too small and the ideas too unimaginative.

Carr’s home base, the Times, at least has a shot because it has continued to invest in the core of the business: great journalism.
