If you haven't checked out TPM Media's Golden Duke award presentation, you ought to. It's a hilarious snark fest, featuring, among others, good ol' Larry Craig.
And for any media types who might happen across my tiny blog, I commend the TPM site to you as an great example of new media. I think it's a good model for how a print newspaper could keep itself relevant, and profitable. TPM isn't print, but it is a good blend of media, including solid investigative reporting. Print media could use its reportorial assets in a similar blend and presentation, drive traffic to its website, and at least generate web income.
And another bit of advice; don't link only to yourself. Most newspaper web sites just link to their own web sites and pages. Interesting sites link to other sources. Don't be afraid that you'll drive traffic away from your web site. You might as the person explores the link, but they'll come back because of your content and links you provide. Huckleberries Online does a good job at linking to non-SR sites, and it's page views are climbing.
