Eli, you'd do well to remember that you work for a newspaper, not a blog....

Why would I do well to remember that, Fnarf? Enlighten me.

I don’t understand the business model yet, but the yet-to-be-named venture has been given a ton of cash by something called Albritton Communications—enough cash, apparently, to make salary offers that two of the most highly-paid and respected political journalists in the business couldn’t refuse.

That's the business model? It's a proven failure. 'Front-money now and figure out how to actually turn a profit later' is the exact business model the dot-coms used, and Seattlites should know as well as anyone how that turned out.

Take on the WP and the NYT?

OK, no prob if they take on the pay-more-to-view NYT, but step AWAY from my WP!

Eli: if you're right, you're cheerleading for the demise of not just your employer's business, but his business category. That's kind of a weird thing to do. If you're wrong, and I think you are, then you're cheerleading for more lemmings-off-the-cliff dotcommery.

Fnarf: I suppose, then, that you think I shouldn't let you know about anything that might hurt my employer's business?

That's a funny thing for a huge media (and blog) consumer like yourself to suggest.

Also, whether or not the Slog does a post about this phenomenon has little impact, in the end, on whether the phenomenon occurs. I don't want to dispel your notions of an all-powerful Slog, but between you and me, we don't control major economic trends or major technological advances.

Didn't we try #6 in Iraq?

Man, that didn't work, did it?

Gomez is right--it's the dot-com boom all over again. Journalists got hired away from their newsrooms at high salaries to become "content providers." Then, within a year or so, these same journalists became "unemployed" (and often returned to those same newsrooms). Perhaps you might take a 1990s history class and broaden your horizons, Eli.
