It’s as if newspapers have such a tight death-grip on traditional media that they can’t possibly grasp OR embrace change. Especially The Boston Globe. There is so much opportunity in social media for them, but the ship is leaving the harbor already (sound blowhorn). Fade….

Problem is, every newspaper site is like that. Tons of junk and no organization. Blogs not updated for months at a time. Just very sloppy.

I stopped making it my home page when it began to overload its site with so much junk that it jammed my browsers regularly. They haven’t quite figured out how to make money without annoying the hell out of their users.
But they seem committed to the site, and they’re trying new things. I’m encouraged that they reached out and asked questions.
I want them to win – not because I necessarily want THEM to win, but because I want SOMEONE to win and show the way. If a top 20 paper can’t do it, what does it say for the rest of journalism?

In Sunday’s edition, the sports page had a Globe reporter staff the Tennessee-Baltimore football game in Memphis. Why? No local interest. The AP story wasn’t good enough? Instead, they pay air fare, hotel and food bills to the reporter, who only filed a running game story with no quotes for the early editions. It’s a joke, and a perfect reasons why newspapers are running themselves into the ground. How the publisher doesn’t see that and question the spending is astounding.
