Great article. Although some of the blame can be attributed to newsrooms who were so worried about church & state refusing to consider any collaboration with revenue departments, or where their pay checks came from. This collaborative attitude did improve a bit, but a day late and a dollar short. By then the layoffs already began. Just saying.

Grant, is there any way out of this spiral?

No, I don't see a way out because the business model of traditional media is broken. More and more advertising dollars are going to the internet.

Another example Grant is the Sunday paper. That has always been a ritual for my wife and I. We pass around the sections, devour them, and talk about what we found in what we read. My four well-educated kids and their three spouses are all big readers, yet none them read the Sunday paper.

Good point. In Edmonton it was the Saturday paper that had all the sections, back when Southam was so dominant.
