The Shape of Things to Come
Why do I have the impression that the new "Appeal" sections of the Commercial Appeal are clear avatars of the look of the paper to come? And why do I despair?
The motto at the top? It's all about you. I'm sure very few businessmen have gone broke by catering to endless self-interested narcissism, but I don't think newspapers ought to be built on it.
The Central City Appeal is seven pages of pictures and puff pieces (including self-written puff pieces), then three pages of classifieds. Oy! The closest thing to "news" is a story on computers at the Lewis Senior Center.
Look upon these works ye peasantry and despair....
