The Times' financial problems aren't really Pinchy's fault. Nor Bill Keller's. After all, according to Keller, "Good Journalism Isn't Cheap."

The article's title is "Where Will You Get Your News in 2012?" Not a tough question to answer. The same place we do now: the Internet. And given the Times' catastrophic drop in value, everyone else feels the same way.
