Ted Turner on the future of papers, magazines

25 November 2008

Is the relentless torrent of breaking news—on television, through the internet, on the mobile phone, etc—making newspapers and magazines irrelevant?

Ted Turner, the founder of CNN, answers the age-old question from reader Kristina Popski in Sofia, Bulgaria, in the latest issue of Time magazine:

“No. I think it has made people more interested in news in general. And breaking news doesn’t give you depth or perspective. You need magazines and newspapers because regular television news doesn’t do it either, usually. People, if they’re interested in news, they’ll get the headlines on television and then go to print for depth and perspective.”
