The New York Times posted an interesting video to their YouTube channel this morning. It's more or less a promotional piece for the Times, but one can easily imagine this being the topic of study for journalism students in generations to come. The video is called "The Advantages of Using A Print Newspaper," and it features interviews with several journalism professors who talk about the importance of the print version of the newspaper -- why it's still important, how it differs from and compliments the online version, and what role it plays in today's media environment.
