Barron's posits this week that an investor in old media today will have a fatter wallet in the years ahead. All it will take for traditional companies to prosper is for them to muddle through the recession, watch some of their rivals wither, and scoop up the market in the process.
The financial weekly suggests the old-media-are-dead mantra is not accurate or informed. It could be decades before either print or broadcasting are irrelevant in the media conversation.
Interestingly, Barron's posts the piece in behind a firewall, so the best you can do is view its first of four pages if you're not a subscriber.
