Cranky this morning 1.

I used to think that in 15 years, we’d be down to about three newspapers — The New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, the L.A. Times, USA Today (ugh) and (in supermarket-tabloid fashion by then) the New York Post.

Maybe now narrow my survivor list to five.

That’s it as far as printed papers would go. Another 20 of the top circ papers would limp along as online-only entities. Everyone else will be out of business. And really, after reading Romenesko on Poynter.com, who would notice?
