No Sympathy For Newspapers

On his blog, Andrew Sullivan, of The Atlantic, is challenging American newspapers "to get over themselves," to stop complaining, to look at the way other periodicals, around the world, are maintaining relatively stronger readership. As more and more papers cut their staffs and shut their doors, Sullivan's commentary may seem sacrilegious, but he has pointed to some beautifully-designed newspapers in Italy, which, in his estimation, are reinventing how information can be presented on the page. Have a look.

Do you think newspapers should get over themselves? What would you like to see them do?
