Journalists keep bemoaning the loss of media jobs while blaming Internet competitors. They fail to realize that newspapers are more profitable than ever providing 20% returns that would be enviable in most industries. But when the new owner of the LA Times states that he is going to cut 800 pages of news from the papers to make even more money, readers are forced to turn to other sources for the information they need, including the Internet, public radio and public TV.
