CAN NEWS find a business model in the digital age? Good question. I think that people are still willing to pay for trustworthy factual reporting — it’s just that not many seem willing to supply it. But it’s also possible that, because of bundling, people have been buying more news than they wanted all along, and now that media delivery is unbundled, they’re only buying as much as they want, and that’s a lot less. I’m not sure.
