Exciting news! David Geffen wants to buy the New York Times. Reportedly. I realize this might fill people like Frank Rich – and a handful of devoted readers – with alarm, but I wonder if anyone cares, or if it really matters?
Read Frank Rich’s latest (always brilliantly written) complaint here. Bottom line: He complains that “whatever shape journalism ultimately takes in America, make no mistake that in the end we will get what we pay for.” Yes, yes, yes. We get what we pay for, and we pay for what we get. But when we no longer “get it,” who will want to pay for it?
Exciting times, indeed!
