While some newspapers are still screwing up the courage to
jump on the Internet bandwagon, others are jumping off. Washington Post
reporter Paul Farhi asks if it’s time to emphasize print and
move away from the Internet
.

At least one newspaper has already taken this
idea to the bank: Amish paper shuns
web, does well in print.  

And what about hyper-localism? The Washington Post recently announced
it will shut
down its hyper-local reporting initiative
, after discovering that “hiring
reporters to cover car thefts, school board meetings and new store openings is
expensive.”

Buzzword, we hardly knew ye!
