So long, editorials

“They can be a leader in their communities by engaging audiences, moderating forums, holding events and curating round table discussion.”
  • Newspapers will start to taper off writing editorials. They’ll find that they can be a leader in their communities by engaging audiences, moderating forums, holding events and curating round table discussion — while avoiding the pitfall of alienating a significant percentage of their audience by telling people what to think.
  • Traditional media will increasingly look to forge partnerships with nonprofit news operations — and even broaden their direct relationships with nonprofit foundations to help fund specific parts of their journalistic operations.
  • Some smart media company is going to realize that tablets, rigged a specific way, can be the new cable TV box — loaded with news apps and bundled premium content, then leased monthly to subscribers who don’t want to pay hundreds of dollars to buy one.
