Roger Black talking about publishers, and specifically in this quoted section the periodical Today:

They’re breaking the stories on the web, and then adding texture and reporting during the day. The print edition features analysis and opinion, the theory being that everyone already has the news. What readers are looking for in print, is the analysis, the background, the critique, the forecast—the narrative.

That’s a great direction for traditional media to go and come to think of it this is largely how I work here at TBR. Basically all of the linked list items suffice as ‘news’ type posts, while the articles I write are the analysis and opinion.

I like the idea of paying for analysis and opinion that has been thought through with a developed narrative and leaving news as easy to go get for free because good thougthful analysis and opinion is much harder to find.
