The Four C’s: CONFIDENCE, CONTENT, CHARGE, CAMPAIGN
It is a pleasure be back home in Mississippi and to be with newspaper friends from Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi.
I am here today to tell you why I believe in the future of newspapers and why I believe you should too.
I will add one caveat to my optimism: The future of newspapers depends on your charging for your news and information content, not giving it away on the internet.
Even though I spend most of my time in Washington at the Newseum, I keep up with what goes on in your three states by watching the front pages every day of some of your daily papers.
