"The warnings and elegies for the big-city newspaper have been done to the point of exhaustion, and I don't want to beat a breaking-down horse of a medium that I actually like. But the picture keeps worsening. Yearly ad falloffs at many such places are accelerating past 15%. At sundry recent points I've mistaken some twitch in the data for a market bottom, and each time I've had newspaper executives tell me I'm completely wrong. It's now time to start considering what was once unthinkable: the post-newspaper media economy in our nation's cities."
