Time television critic Jamie Poniewozik throws out a question: If journalism's business model fails, what replaces it?
Then there are eight suppositions:
1. Day jobs. Journalists will do something else mostly.
2. Crowdsourcing. Journalists will be part of a contribution.
3. Interested parties. Journalists might contribute to passionate special groups.
4. Non-profits. Interested parties that aren't interested in profiting.
5. Product placement. Coffee on the desk, or in the story.
6. Make the business other than journalism. Make journalism a front for other activity.
7. Journalism is the business. Outsource the journalist to other businesses.
8. Make experts journalists. And vice versa.
