"And when Luis Fabragas promotes a the Incline, he's not promoting a competitor, he's promoting journalists."

I'm with you most of the way, but while he is promoting journalism (yes, that's a good thing) he is nonetheless promoting someone whose business plan includes selling directly against the Trib -- the soon-to-be all-digital Trib. Not to mention a competitor that likely "curate" a story or two from them in time.

It's all well and good to be civil and treat them professionally as an opponent instead of an enemy. It's another thing to lavish praise on them.

Maybe they'll quote him as a blurb in their marketing kit.

This might be the best summation of the current situation of the news industry in Pittsburgh I have read. Very well written! Agreed that all papers are better off when we promot journalism.

Yes, it's best to "promot" (sic) journalism, if we're talking about REAL journalism, not the curation and abject silliness that dominates UpGruv and The Incline.

These are speculative ventures, one from the ruins of Trib Total Media and the other from a Philly company who got some Gannett backing. Significant time will pass before it's clear if either of them, or similar ventures around the country, are viable. Just as as some won't accept the days of print are numbered, others, mostly younger, don't want to believe these new sites may not be the second coming. This may be their ticket into a new era of journalism, one with fewer standards and a greater emphasis on clickbait nonsnese. Or it may not be.
