Another Example of Media Disintermediation

David Astor, syndication columnist for Editor & Publisher Magazine, has written a column [which unfortunately might by now be hidden behind VNU’s paid archive wall] about how My Comics Page gained 10,000 new paid subscribers this spring. MCP now serves 25,000 paid subscribers. This is yet an example of (a) daily and Sunday newspapers unwittingly having their contents disintermediated and (b) how the contents of newspapers are worth more apart than when packaged together as a whole.
