Morning Links: December 8, 2008

— The Wall Street Journal is talking out loud about poaching the markets of the major metros, Gawker says. Would that mean regional variations of the WSJ that are have just enough local content to turn two-paper subscribers into one-paper subscribers? I have a hard time seeing average newspaper readers converting in large numbers to anything as business-focused the current WSJ.

— I have a feeling there’ll be a day, not too distant from today, when we look back on something like last Sunday’s Public Editor column in the NYT and wonder why so much energy was spent splitting so many hairs.

— His advice is nothing new, but Pete Flint’s how-to-save-newspapers post includes a dandy of a fever chart on real-estate ad spend.

— The BBC, like the NYT, is looking at how it links to outside sites in stories.
