  • Larry King live plots Larry King dead

    Good morning.

    1. CNN legend also plans to freeze himself

      Life's not been quite the same for workaholic, vain, celebrity-loving Larry King since CNN pulled the plug on the gabfest icon. He's now 81, on his seventh marriage (this one's gone for 18 years with just one brief hiatus after his fling with his much-younger wife's sister) and clearly obsessed with his death. So Larry King live is mulling Larry King dead. "King would love to attend his own funeral. He would watch invisibly over the proceedings and laugh. 'I would like the ceremony to begin, 'Today we are honoring a 160-year-old man who was caught in bed by an irate husband,’" King said in a characteristically droll Mark Leibovich profile.  ‘"And the funeral is late because it took six days to wipe the smile off his face.’"

      He wanted Mario Cuomo to speak, but Cuomo's gone.

  • An expert’s forecast — Canada will have few if any print newspapers by 2025

    Ken Goldstein, a leading media business analyst in Canada, has just published a grim prediction for legacy news outlets north of the border: In 2025, it is likely that there will be few, if any, printed daily newspapers.”

    For good measure, Goldstein adds, “there might be no local broadcast stations in Canada” 10 years from now.

    canada-papers-circWhile noting declines in advertising, classified particularly, Goldstein bases his bleak view on newspaper circulation trends (see graph).  Daily paid circulation as a percentage of Canadian households, he writes, has fallen from just under 50 percent in 1995 to 20 percent in 2014.

    If those declines continue, circulation will amount to only 5 to 10 percent of households in 2025, too little, Goldstein says, “to support a viable print business model for most general interest daily newspapers.”

    He adds in his August 20 paper, “Canada’s Digital Divides,”

    Thus, Canada’s daily newspapers now are engaged in a 10-year race against time and technology to develop an online business model that will enable them to preserve their brands without print editions, and – even more difficult – to try to develop new kinds of economic bundles (or other kinds of economic arrangements) that will enable their online presence to maintain their current journalistic scope.

  • VICE News crew faces terrorism accusations in Turkey

    Reporters on assignment for VICE News in southeast Turkey are scheduled to appear in court Monday to face accusations of terrorism, allegations the international media company says are unsubstantiated.

    The VICE crew was reporting in the city of Diyarbakir in the country’s predominantly Kurdish region when they were arrested for lack of proper government identification, “security sources” told Reuters Friday.

    Two journalists from VICE UK, British citizens Jake Hanrahan and Philip Pendlebury, are among the crew. Along with a translator and one other colleague, they were reporting on escalating tensions between police and the youth wing of a pro-Kurdistan Workers’ Party.

    No formal charges have been filed against the journalists yet, according to a spokesman for VICE News.

    Since news of the journalists’ arrests spread Friday, several advocacy groups have called for their immediate release. Read more
