Kinsley: Can News Survive After Newspapers?

Michael Kinsley in a Time piece on survival of newspaper companies writes in part:

Newspapers on paper are on the way out. Whether newspaper companies are on the way out too depends. Some of them are going to find the answers. And some are going to fritter away the years quarreling about staff cuts.

He adds:

The fact that people won’t pay for news on the Internet isn’t as devastating for the old medium as it seems. People don’t pay for their news in traditional newspapers: they pay for the paper, which typically costs the company more than it charges for the finished product. So in theory, giving away the news without the paper looks like a good deal for newspapers, if they can keep the advertising.
