  9. 9. Disruptive Change Dean Baquet, A.M.E., New York Times: “ &quot;I think that the whole debate about the decline of newspapers has become a financial debate . About market share. About fear of profit margin decline. What's missing is readership, audience, public service. We reach many more people than ever before, and have a much larger impact . ....I'm a little concerned that all the cost-cutting might make it difficult in some places, but public-service journalism is good business because people read it.&quot; .” - Source: Interview with Karen Brown, Dean, Poynter Institute, Poynter.org
