Neuharth recalls when frats stole “attractive” USAT boxes | USA Today
“Our lawyers, as lawyers are wont to do, said, ‘Let’s sue the bastards,’” says Al Neuharth. “And I said, ‘Like hell we will. Let’s find them and we will make them our distributors.’ And we did that.” | More thoughts from Neuharth as USA Today turns 25:
* “The slide in newspaper ad revenues and the slide in newspaper circulation is real, but it is not as dramatic as critics say it is. It is not exactly new.”
* “I do think that newspapers printed on newsprint will be around for a long, long time. I’m not sure they will show large circulation growth. They may not show much circulation growth at all. Some might show less. … I’d just be surprised if newspapers were eliminated.”
