On Monday's Backchat, is there a future for newspapers? The Hong Kong News-Expo opened earlier this month telling the rich history of the local news industry; but looking at the present media landscape, is there a future for the newspaper? If they are purely online, how will they make money? Voluntary subscriptions? Paywalls? Advertising? Or will they just rely on rich owners like the Washington Post and SCMP? Will they blend into electronic media like television news channels? Or are there still advantages to text based news and analysis that will never go away? Will all newspapers be free?
After 9.20, are Canadians safe to travel to the Mainland for business?
