“First: Google and other internet companies have no business telling anybody how to do content business, given that the majority have no real experience in it.
“Second: Newspapers (and all print media companies) have just as much opportunity and chance for success online, if not more, as anybody.
“Third: Print is not ‘dead’ because platforms never truly die (hello, radio?)—and anybody who says otherwise is inexperienced or they’d know better. If anything, the future opens more opportunity, not less, for those in the print media business.”
