In all this talk of Google’s “scavenger-ness” tell me how do you find the thgnis you want to find without a search engine? I would imagine that is not a very friendly (or useful web experience). If the problem that is driving newspapers into the ground is the far greater awareness and visibility of this content as a result of the exposure from sources like google, maybe they should pull all content off the web and go back to the local / regional model of the past.Unfortunately its a changed world and that would surely drive newspapers to extinction at a much faster pace.As someone who values good journalism (and a newspaper subscriber myself!) it is still clear that this is a business model problem. I do think newspapers need to charge for online content as ads just don’t cut it (for now) – but the whole industry needs to cooperate or simply won’t work.Trust me, if people can’t get access to good news content the willingness to pay will go up. This is no simple feat – its monumental, but I just don’t see any other way.
