Of course, it is about getting paid for content,
but it is also about being a marketplace for information. That could be about being a marketplace for journalistic content, but also many different kinds of advertising content that have a lot of interest for people and help them [in] their daily life. I believe what newspapers should do is be reliable and organise information. With their great brands they can give credibility in a way that no blogger can do. They will be much smaller businesses, but they will be very profitable.
The news article is obsolete in the digital era.
The Daily Mail (sighs) becomes the 2nd most popular newspaper website. (And nothing we can do about it)

Cómo los periodistas ‘de papel’ han enfrentado la transición a un mundo donde una gran cantidad de “extraños” contribuye directamente en las noticia
A study from the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism reveals that print newspapers are suffering declining readership and revenue in most of the developed world, such as in Europe and Australia, though in general the problems are not as severe as in the United States. Five factors seem to be at play in determining the health of a country’s newspapers or the severity of their problems: 1)The rising literacy and growing disposable income in developing nations, 2) the state of the online penetration in a country, 3)Countries with either evolving democracies or at least evolving capitalist systems tend to drive newspaper growth, 4)government subsidy, 5)the economic structure of each country’s newspaper industry.
