Video: Can News Be Profitable on the Internet?

From November 6–10, the Lincoln Network hosted the Reboot Conference, a series of virtual conversations about the intersection of technology and policy. Day three of the conference focused on the future of online news, and included conversations with leaders of the Knight Foundation, the American Journalism Project, Substack, The Washington Post, and The Texas Tribune, among others.

Included in the November 10 discussions was a conversation between the Lincoln Network’s Marshall Kosloff and Alliance CEO David Chavern. Chavern and Kosloff discussed the state of online media, the overwhelming power of the digital duopoly over news publishers, the role of Section 230, and the profitability of digital news as we move to an even more online future.
