Arkansas Democrat: One Newspaper Prospers

Fortune did a video piece on the success of one newspaper during this time of print collapse.

As I have blogged before many of us old and out-of-touch career reporters were called naive when we questioned the decision to let give away the newspaper content for free.

More than one "hip" editor told us, and me personally, that we had no choice but to go online for free to save our audience.

The example in Arkansas seems to prove them wrong. So to those former editors, "We told you so." Interestingly, they are still working in the business and many of us with the smarts to question their decisions are not. Go figure.
