Read his op ed article in Aftenposten about journalism that sells (in Norwegian).
Journalistikk som er nyttig eller byr på nytelser fortsetter å vokse på bekostning av journalistikk om nyheter. Hvis man ser på journalistisk innhold som vare til salgs, blir nyheter nesten verdiløse for selgeren med én gang de er sitert av andre og er blitt felleseie på nett. Det skjer umiddelbart, og er en av forklaringene på papiravisenes tilbakegang og mediehusenes problemer med digitaliseringens økonomi.
