Instead I went to work for the Asbury Park N. The newspaper business is at a perilous crossroads. In the case of Outside Magazine, the publication will launch a Facebook Group it created alongside an advertiser where it will link to branded content created specifically for that advertiser.

    Instead I went to work for the Asbury Park N. Henry's ascension at the Globe sparked hope. Unable to retain readership and therefore unable to rake in revenue from advertisers, print publications became increasingly unprofitable and unattractive to potential investors. Yet Wolff's style is to concentrate on how the moguls have sought him out, how he has been invited to expensive shindigs "I found myself on the Forbes family yacht" p. The Return of the Moguls chronicles a story in the making.

The return of the moguls book

The unexpected twist to the story, however, is not what they sold it for but who they sold it to: John Henry, the principal owner of the Boston Red Sox.

The unexpected twist to the story, however, is not what they sold it for but who they sold it to: John Henry, the principal owner of the Boston Red Sox. Though Bezos and Henry are the two most prominent individuals to enter the newspaper business, a third preceded them.

The troubled LA Times exiles its editor and publisher, as it prepares for a sale. This is excellent, valuable research, written in a clear, concise style. They allege Facebook is in violation of the Fair Housing Act by letting people limit groups who see real estate ads.

The forces killing major dailies, alternative weeklies, and small-town shoppers are well understood-or seem obvious in hindsight, at least-and the catalog of publications that have gone under reads like a who's who of American journalism.

NPC Headliners Book Event: Dan Kennedy,

And while the company is under scrutiny on various fronts, the social giant is still continuing to help publishers behind the scenes. Over the course of a generation, the story of the daily newspaper has been an unchecked slide from record profitability and readership to plummeting profits, increasing irrelevance, and inevitable obsolescence.

This event will feature a discussion with the author, an audience question-and-answer session, and a book signing. This is a book ostensibly about media wheelers and dealers, the money men who divide and conquer, merge and squeeze while manufacturing low-interest loans and golden parachutes for themselves.

A billionaire who made his money in the world of high finance, Henry inspired optimism in Boston because of his track record as a public-spirited business executive—and because his deep pockets seemed to ensure that the shrunken newspaper would not be subjected to further downsizing.

I suspect that some of the moguls mentioned herein might say that Wolff has raised Monday morning quarterbacking to an ethereal plain.

THE RETURN OF THE MOGULS

Having established his authority--and to his credit he admits to having lost a buck or two in media deals himself--Wolff then digresses and digresses and then returns to the story, as leisurely as a patriarch at dinner with his heirs.

But then something strange happened — a new generation of media moguls with deep pockets decided to buy-in to the newspaper business. Indeed in the annals of self-indulgent and largely rhetorical tomes about media, Wolff has here something close to a singular achievement, something to rival in its way the memoirs of many a Hollywood movie producer.

Kennedy, who reports carefully and writes clearly, is too honest to offer panaceas for the financial ills of newspapers. If newspapers are to survive, their proprietors must dare throw ideas against the wall, seeing what sticks. Though the subtitle only mentions two moguls, the analysis devotes equal attention to three.

But by definition, a book about the new newspaper moguls is going to be focused on the larger papers that have been hardest-hit by the cratering of the business model. A billionaire who made his money in the world of high finance, Henry inspired optimism in Boston because of his track record as a public-spirited business executive—and because his deep pockets seemed to ensure that the shrunken newspaper would not be subjected to further downsizing.

A bankruptcy court approves the sale of the Boston Herald to a hedge-fund company. The social platform is also facing a lawsuit from fair housing groups.
