Feeling needed

Ethan Kaplan is at his best when he gets his rant on:

Newspapers – You’ve been given 15 years now to figure
out how to change your business model around. In that time, a small San
Francisco company killed your classified ad market, you guys lost the
best people in your offices to startups and other journalist empires
with more capital, and still surround yourself in oligarchic Taj
Mahal’s with mahogany offices with the insistence that the public
“needs” you. Right. The New York Times is going the right direction.
The next move: get rid of the print product. Shutter the presses and
move on.
