Michael, I doubt it . . . the business model is doomed viz this quote:
"Across operations of different sizes in different types of economic settings, the newspapers studied were, on average, losing print advertising dollars at seven times the rate that they were growing digital ad revenue in the last year for which they had complete data. "
