So the question is whether newspapers can hang on for another generation until the advertising and demographics converge. No question, some papers won’t make it, either because owners go broke, or because corporate overseers are pressured by Wall Street to pull the plug. Ibargüen concedes, “It’s a race against time. But I really do believe that, in a democracy, there is still an ongoing, continuing need for generally shared and verifiable information – and that, with or without print, we’ll figure out new ways to deliver it. “

He sees no alternative: “You can either wring your hands and say, ‘Oh dear, the medium I love is gone,’ or you can try to find ways to still do the journalistic things that you love, in new formats.”
