Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The flipside is that the cost of reporting on various issues (including editorial oversight) ... once it is freed from the scale economies of the printing press ... can be sustained by a smaller level of subscription. Many people are unwilling to pay for lightly edited AP content  ... but how many are unwilling to pay is beside the point. The critical question is whether a sufficient are willing to pay for reporting, and how to get in touch with them to make the offer.

It is likely to be new organizations who will discover the answer to those questions.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
