“The future of the news business is online and I suspect it will come out just fine — as long as all involved can resist the ultimate temptation: becoming a ‘click whore,'” writes David Horsey. “Sure, any fool can get a lot of page views by running photos of cute kittens, funny dogs, hot cheerleaders and bosomy models in bikinis. It might bring in a lot of money. It might be read all over. But it would not be a newspaper.”
