Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

In some ways it's academic. The Press - as we know it - is on its way out. The entire Fourth Estate media-conglomorate version is on it's way out. What will replace it is still in question.

The giant plug of the Intertubez could still be pulled - but if it isn't, then all unhappiness will join forces and throw out the bums.

well its a combination of hope and fear, as they circlethe plughole, they'll cause more and more damage.  Economics get tighter so more and more shortcuts get made. more stories get printed about the poor and unfortunate and who cares if they're correct, because they can't afford lawyers to fight back

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Even the Financial Times Deutschland is closing and laying off nearly 400 employees.

El Pais recently dumped 1/3 of its workforce while the CEO of PRISA keeps his salary of several million euros a year.

Of course, he's doing the Right Thing.
