The LA Times’ Tim Rutten takes a look at the future of newspapers in his recent Regarding Media column.

In it he names the three groups trying to take down newspapers — “ideologically minded commentators,” “academics for whom migration from one novelty to another has become a kind of career path,” and “demoralized newspaper proprietors themselves, though we employ the term loosely, since nowadays a majority of them are corporate apparatchiks.”

It’s a good read, especially to watch him wield his lay-’em-bare scalpel.
