We all still want to read newspapers, even kids (my 15 year-old son studies the Red Sox box score every summer morning). We may want to read it online or to be able to comment on our favorite columnist’s piece or watch a video. But we trust that the journalists at the Wall Street Journal or The New York Times are cut from a different cloth than some blogger on Gawker. They are actually out to tell us the truth, whether we like it or not. The only rub is how to pay for it. For the first time my local paper, The Boston Globe, is generating more revenue from reader subscriptions than from advertising. As it should be, I say.
