Responsibility for the decline of our industry: If not you, then who?

Mindy McAdams on Teaching Online Journalism:

" ... The managers [of the newspaper industry] have made many stupid decisions, often out of pure ignorance or from fear. They have fired consultants who told them radical change was necessary and paid big bucks to other consultants who smoothly assured them that 'content is king'.

If you have no [good] leader, step up! "
