What Will Become of Newspapers?

By John S. Carroll

A speech delivered by John S. Carroll, Knight Visiting Lecturer 2005-2006 (deceased), at the 2006 meeting of the American Society of Newspaper Editors addresses the technological changes facing the news industry, but more importantly, a conflict between the business and editorial sides of newspapers. Carroll discusses new models of ownership, and the problems that can arise when business interests negatively impact a paper’s mission to serve its community.
