(BURRISS)&nbsp; --&nbsp; It seems almost an article of business faith that as revenues shrink you make the product smaller in an effort to save money. And for years it seems that newspapers have followed that model: as advertising revenue has gone down, newspapers have gotten smaller and smaller, with fewer stories, fewer reporters and, as a result, fewer reasons to buy the paper in the first place.<br>&nbsp;</p> Mon, 17 Dec 2012 14:24:27 +0000 Dr. Larry Burriss 18886 at http://wmot.org Burriss on Media: Real Journalists http://wmot.org/post/burriss-media-real-journalists <p>MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (BURRISS)&nbsp; --&nbsp; Life used to be so much easier when “freedom of the press” just meant newspapers. Then came movies, radio, advertising and television, and things got a little confusing. The Internet added some more mystification. But blogs and bloggers? Well, now we’re talking a whole new level of bewilderment.<br> Mon, 22 Oct 2012 12:27:19 +0000 Dr. Larry Burriss 16985 at http://wmot.org Burriss on Media: Real Journalists Burriss on Media: The Olympics http://wmot.org/post/burriss-media-olympics <p>MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (BURRISS)&nbsp; --&nbsp; Since just about everyone else is talking about the Olympic Games, I might was well jump in, too.<br /><br /> Let&rsquo;s start with a couple of clichés that may or may not be true: it&rsquo;s not whether you win or lose, it&rsquo;s how you play the game. And second, the customer is always right.<br /> Mon, 06 Aug 2012 18:08:28 +0000 Dr. Larry Burriss 14124 at http://wmot.org
