Dallas Morning News unveils new format

Interesting tidbit that I am gleaning from Romenesko this morning.

The Dallas Morning News is introducing a one-section condensed version of the paper for non-subscribers to bring them into the fold.

An interesting move.

My argument to the continuation of newspapers is that they are too big. Outside of the Wall Street Journal, which manages to fill its pages consistently with well done news, it seems to me that a good amount of what gets printed in a daily is not anything that someone will read.

Remember that newspapers used to be single- or two-page publications, and they only covered the most essential information for people.
