We at VDARE.COM have hammered all of them...the Los Angeles Times
, the New York Times
, the Wall Street Journal
, the Denver Post
and many others. But here`s an unbelievable story that tells you all you need to know about where print journalism is headed.
A friend at the Los Angeles Times
told me that, apparently in an effort to save itself from extinction, management asked the staff to promote new subscriptions and newsstand sales at every opportunity.
So my friend approached her niece, a young professional woman and a recent graduate from a prestigious California university, and asked her to consider buying the Times
She replied, "Sure, where can I get one?"
A college graduate who had never bought a dead-tree newspaper! Really and truly, this is the stuff that cannot be made up.
