“[A]s I suspected 6 years ago, successful digital journalism really is different — as different from print and broadcast journalism as print and broadcast are from each other. To build a successful digital journalism business, you have to build a native digital newsroom, native digital distribution, a native digital business model, and a native digital cost structure. And building those things isn’t as easy as it may seem.”—Henry Blodget responds to Michael Wolff: “USA Today Thinks We Should Sell Business Insider!”
In any case, if you have 40 million pageviews per month, that’s 480 million pageviews per year. Now, let’s say you have advertising revenue of $14 million per year. Then you’re getting revenue of $14 million per 480 million pageviews. Divide both numbers by 480,000: that’s the same as $29 per thousand pageviews. Not $3. Wolff’s off by an order of magnitude.

“That’s why Ford Nation makes perfect sense as a TV show. It’s a stroke of genius. When a situation beggars conventional analysis and even irony itself, just air the situation and let the viewers judge. That’s one of television’s gifts to us, like it or not.”—John Doyle on why the Ford Nation TV show is a stroke of genius
“The last thing this terrible situation needs is a layer of partisan politics. Within Ontario’s legislature and across this city, we all have to stand together to represent the best interests of the people.
At every level, your government is here to serve you.
Toronto is a great city in an amazing province. We have a proud history and a bright future.
Toronto is greater than one politician or one government. Ontario is greater than one politician or one government.
I understand that people are affected by what is happening at this moment.
But I want the people of Toronto to know that we will not be defined by this.
And we will all work together to ensure the people’s interests are served.”—Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne’s Statement on City of Toronto
