Miami Herald Ombudsman weighs in on Miami Herald Plight. By Geniusofdespair

Read Miami Herald Ombudsman report from 12/16/08.

He says:
"...21st-century technology may be driving U.S. media back to a 19th-century business model. What I didn't expect, in a jolt of double irony, is that The Miami Herald itself might be the first major paper to regress."

"But what technology giveth, it can taketh way. The digital revolution has made websites, radio and cable television so much cheaper to produce that they have proliferated, segmenting the market and undercutting newspapers and traditional television news programs."
