Mutter: Detroit plan ‘eviscerates’ newspaper model

Newspaper industry blogger Alan Mutter (hi, Alan!) says in a new post: “The reported plan to cut home delivery to just a few days a week at the Detroit dailies does not merely tweak the classic newspaper model. It eviscerates it, perhaps mortally. While this bold initiative may restore the short-term profitability of the Detroit Free Press, The Detroit News and the joint operating agency that serves them, the experiment in non-daily home delivery could well be self-defeating in the long run.”
