New York Times media editor, Page One star and FishbowlLA favorite Bruce Headlam was on The Daily Show last night, filling in for an apparently disease-ridden Andrew Rossi. Headlam spent a bit of time explaining how online advertising revenue just isn’t up to par with what newspaper ad revenue continues to command. Which is undoubtedly the reason newspapers still exist in physical form. Headlam had some interesting things to say, but we would have liked it if he pointed out that many online content providers don’t just save expenses by not sending people to Iraq, they save money by not paying their writers.
