The slow death of the dead tree media

The New York Times Co.’s advertising department is struggling to replace its once-lucrative print ads with digital sales, as Google Inc.(GOOG) and Facebook Inc. gobble up increasingly large chunks of marketers’ budgets.

Both print and digital advertising at the newspaper decreased about 3 percent in the third quarter, the company said last month, signaling that the total amount fell below $140 million. That’s the lowest level since at least 1998, when the Times began reporting the ad revenue of its individual papers.

While the entire newspaper business is suffering advertising woes, the Times’ prestige and elite readership should be giving it a leg up over other publications, said Rick Edmonds, a media analyst with the Poynter Institute. Instead, the paper hasn’t yet capitalized on its surging online audience. The slump also has led to management turnover and budget cuts, hampering the ad department’s ability to attract new clients, people familiar with the situation said.

“The Times’ ad business reflects what’s happening in the industry, which is down altogether,” Edmonds said.“And if the Times is making deep cuts in the ad department, that could be affecting the quality of their ad sales.”

Cost reductions and low morale have led to the departure of as many as a dozen sales executives at the division, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the matter is private. In some cases, budgets have kept sales reps from offering free Times subscriptions to clients -- once seen as a standard part of doing business, the people said.

Health care.

"Little need be said about Obamacare, an orphan now disowned by most of its parents. The purpose of this vast new entitlement was not to ensure all Americans better health care (if it had been, then pro-Obama business owners, unions, and congressional staffers would have wanted in), but instead a sort of health-care TSA bureaucracy, with more dependents, more federal workers, and higher redistributive taxes in short, larger government."

These embassies were attacked by surprise and/or in war zones.

The CIA knew of a terrorist threat on 9/11/2012 the day before.

It was neither a surprise and we weren't involved in that war. So why didn't this administration do something to protect those people?

Scandal

"Bill Clinton gave us plenty of scandals; but, as in the case of the Nixon administration, the media galvanized public attention to the danger of a sometimes lawless administration.

But whether it is the Benghazi deception, the IRS scandal, the NSA disclosures, the AP monitoring, or Fast and Furious, a new precedent has been established that the public is supposed to weigh two considerations in assessing scandal: the truth versus the damage that the truth can do to a progressive vision of a fairer America. So far the truth has lost."

Pretty sure the conservative Heritage Foundation didn't want big government to have total control over our health care.

There was a much better way to go about this.

CBO estimated 30 million will still be uninsured under Obamacare. About the same as now without big government and the IRS involved.
