Debate Over Future of Los Angeles Times: National or Local?

The Los Angeles Times has downsized substantially and is suffering, along with many other newspapers, from Internet competition. A 2007 public television report presented a debate over whether the LA Times should continue to try and be a national/international newspaper or focus on state and local news. In early 2009, the LA Times announced a decision to drop its California section, which appeared to signal that it would not follow the path to a state and local focus. In the earlier TV report, a financial analyst argued that there was room in the U.S. for only 3 national papers: the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and USA Today. The LA Times, he argued, had to focus more locally. This brief clip summarizes the debate.
