Greg Beato of Reason writes, somehow, we’ll struggle through the death of newspapers OK:

Journalism may be in flux right now, but the long-term trend is toward more transparency, more news, a better-informed citizenry. We’re entering a new Light Ages, and when the last newspaper dies, thousands of sources will be rushing to break the sad news first. One of them might even be Dan Rather. His HDNet series Dan Rather Reports has a Twitter account, and one of his staffers posts to it regularly.

At 140 characters max per ghostwritten tweet, Dan can be fake but abbreviated!
