Rumor has it that newspapers will inevitably disappear, but according to the Uncommon Knowledge interview with Robert Thomson, chief executive officer of News Corp, that does not need to happen. Thomson discusses how newspapers have always created a community and how that can be done better now than ever before. Thomson became CEO in January 2013; before that he was editor in chief at Dow Jones & Company and managing editor of the Wall Street Journal. News Corp, often called the New News after it recently separated from Twenty-First-Century Fox, is a network of leading companies in diversified media, news, education, and information services.
