What Is The Future Of News?

Dan Conover urges patience:

...the first meaningful test won't come until a major American city loses its only metro daily....That's because metro newspapers are taking up the market space in which the innovation he's looking for must occur. Newspapers may be failing, but most do a passable job of limiting serious competition in their markets. What succeeds in the shadow of an established metro, therefore, may not be what ultimately winds up contending for the market positions vacated by Old Media giants.
