Nonprofit Newspapers: Think Tank : The New Yorker
Nonprofit Newspapers

In the foreseeable future, it seems, there will be two kinds of nonprofit newspapers—those which are deliberately so and those which are reluctantly so. Ever since I left the Washington Post, in 2005—after twenty years there that included a stint in management—and particularly since I joined the nonprofit world at the New America Foundation and started learning about the management and fund-raising issues at tax-exempt organizations, I have been mulling over this idea: that only by turning the Post into a nonprofit trust and raising a university-size endowment to support the newsroom could the paper retain the vitality it requires to serve as a successful watchdog over our constitutional system. Now David Swensen, the chief investment officer at Yale, and Michael Schmidt, a financial analyst, have come forward with a similar argument.

Why iTunes is not a workable model for the newspaper business « Clay Shirky
Newspapers / News are not a monopoly/oligopoly - is a perfect competitive market.
Where Music with - Sony, EMI, Universal, and Warner. is a oligopoly. // They want the highest price for their good - and get it in fact.
.
>> Thus an iTunes model won't work because of the sheer amount of competitors and the fact that some are willing and do offer free news/content.
