Will long-form journalism survive?

These days, paper is being replaced by pixels. A NY Times Magazine editor muses on what this means for long-form journalism here. “A typical cover story in the Times Magazine, when you add up what we pay the author and what the expenses for travel are - -and this leaves out the editing and fact-checking costs, the photography, and so on - - the tally is north of $40,000, and often, if a war zone is involved, considerably more. Do we still have the time to report and read such pieces? And will we have the money? If the reader is an on-line reader, paying nothing, who is going to foot the bill?”
