A Quote for All Time

by Roger Pynn

New York Times Media Writer David Carr ends a story on the gathering storm that seems sure to wreak fatal havoc on the newspaper industry with this quote:

“… great journalism, on any platform, is the one sure hedge against irrelevancy.”

Sure, people are watching movies at home that they’ve downloaded from Netflix, but after frightening declines in 2011 box-office attendance was reportedly up nearly 15 percent early this year. Domestic movie revenue is at an all-time high of $5.86 billion, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Do you think just maybe it was because of good movies released?

It is and always will be about content.
