  1. There’s a newspaper publisher coming to speak at the National Press Club in Washington whose talk is titled “Newspapers should be free, just like all other news media.”

    From the press release:

    Michael Phelps, CEO of the Washington-Baltimore Examiner Newspaper Group, Publisher and President of The Washington Examiner, will discuss “Newspapers should be free, just like all other news media”

    Phelps will discuss The Examiner Newspaper Group and how it took action to revive newspaper readership and advertising by focusing on delivering local news in a format and with content convenient and compelling to readers, and designed to help advertisers target their customers. Part of that format meant publishing a free paper that could be delivered to homes and in single copy patterns to compete with free content on the Web, and to attract younger readers that advertisers covet — and who have never paid for news: Web, television or radio.
