— Jeff Jarvis responds to the Tribune bankruptcy. A smart piece, I think, but I’d quarrel with this:
Some [newspapers] are looking at stopping publishing a day or two (which is just stupid: news never happens on Mondays?).
The point of cutting back days is not that “news never happens on Mondays.” It’s that printing a newspaper isn’t profitable on Mondays. There’d still be a little thing called a web site. I’d think Jeff would be more platform-agnostic on that point.
