Brauchli: No plans for a Washington Post paywall

Asian American Journalists Association
At the AAJA convention in Detroit, Post executive editor Marcus Brauchli said “we are quite content being the largest free premium newspaper online” and that a paywall won’t be going up anytime soon. Knight Foundation’s John Bracken told the audience that “print is the new vinyl”; that got a big reaction. || Read more tweets and news from the convention.

    I work at a small daily where print advertising and subscription revenue provide the vast majority of revenue. Our digital product is important and gets a lot of love, care and attention. I don’t know what things will look like in the coming years. I do know that, for now, print pays the bills as we sort it all out. I can live with the uncertainty and the transitioning. But I could do with out snarky dismissals like this from the Knight Foundation.

    Running a diploma mill (Kaplan) is a nice cushion for Wapo.

    The way he talks, you’d almost think the Knight Foundation got money from Google. Which it does.
