We are living in troubled times.

A report surfaced this week that the Globe has lost 90 percent of its
value in 15 years and the Times is desperate to sell it. There are
losing money on every copy they print and Globe staffers are fearful
the Globe could fold if a deal is not made.

In radio the truth is billings after 6 PM simply don't exist. There is
a reason WBZ carries the Bruins as they bring in cash the talk shows
don't generate.

You can't charge an ISP for access to a site. That train has simply
left the station. Radio-TV and print has a business model that is now
hopelessly broken.
