Newspapers have been having problems, and whatnot. Why have they not asked Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter's advice sooner? Despite this error, Carter has deigned to stop having amazing sex for a few minutes to tell you how to save newspapers:
Just find the best story ever and then write it, Problem Solved:
My suggestion to newspapers everywhere is to give the public a reason to read them again. So here's an idea: get on a big story with widespread public appeal, devote your best resources to it, say a quiet prayer, and swing for the fences.
Graydon gives the example of the current expense scandal that threatens to literally topple the government of England. That story was dug up by a newspaper! Instead of whining about "the internet" and "bankruptcy," why don't you newspapers here in the USA also dig up stories-of-a-lifetime and then put them on the front page, really big?
Graydon Carter is fairly sure the Washington Post sold some papers off that, whatsit, Watergate thing. More of that.
