Newspapers Colluding, Surviving

In Techdirt. Interesting piece on the survival of newspapers. Including the use of acts of congress to remove collusion penalties and the use of payment walls. For a while I thought that local news could allow them to survive, but I doubt that now. It is getting increasingly bleak. Certain aspects of quality focus, used by the WSJ, have been successful. That perhaps can work, but only for a time. Focus of need and opinion at zero cost cannot be beat.
