We’ve killed plenty of pixels here talking about newspapers, struggling business models, paywalls, and new reading technologies, but this video from China uses the turf war between the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal and quickly sums it all up. Be sure to watch until the end. Even as someone who can’t speak a lick of Chinese, this video makes perfect sense. It’s worth noting that Americans get more news now than they did 10 years ago — they just get more and more of it online.

Happy Friday!
