Nevertheless, the Newspaper Project launched with a website and ads that appeared in 300 newspapers on Monday. Here’s a PDF, if you’re interested. So far, the website appears to be mainly a linklog of material that’s appeared elsewhere, but the slate of authors is impressive. “Future ads will highlight the civic value of news content and how well print advertising continues to work for many businesses,” says Poynter’s Rick Edmonds.
It’s good to see the industry standing up for itself, but it’s depressing to see this initiative so focused on print.
Pretty decent ad though. Newspaper Project has more on the skinny.
