Maureen Dowd on the newspaper crisis

From today's New York Times:

The therapist tone works with me because my profession is in a meltdown. Firms, like Google here and Craigslist in San Francisco, have hijacked journalism, making us feel about as modern as the Tyrannosaurus rex model that sits on the Google campus.

Google is in a battle royal over whether it has the right to profit so profligately from newspaper content at a time when journalism is in such jeopardy.

It can't possibly be the fault of the journalism business, can it? No, it's got to be that Google and Craigslist have "hijacked journalism."

Yeah, evil google, continuing to hire Americans, invest and spend throughout the downturn... enriching shareholders, employees and providing value to consumers who use their services...all at the expense of Maureen Dowd and her elitist snob colleagues at the NYT, who have been such a wonderful source for objective news over the last decade.

What a pathetic editorial.

LL, a WSJ article today titled "Stimulus Confusion Frustrates Business" is a must-read.
