How Newspapers Can Survive the Internet

Successive cutbacks throughout Tel Aviv’s print-media industry have cost
hundreds of jobs, and only last week Israel’s most influential daily,
Ha’aretz, reportedly told its employees that the closely held company’s
financial situation is “severe” and it will be shedding another 20% of
its 400 editorial employees.
However, as publishers and journalists throughout the world seek
salvation, a severely ill Israeli daily may be about to unwittingly
launch a simple model for national newspapers’ survival.
