Newspapers don't respect and value their readers.
Six years ago, when I was but a wee young 'un in this biz, I was invited to several journalism conferences to discuss the future of media. I attended 2-3 of them before I quit them cold-turkey. The hostility in those rooms toward me was fierce, and it just wasn't worth the hassle. Rather than try and learn about what seemed to be working in this newfangled web, they saw me as the enemy and closed ranks.
