Warren Buffett's Monday CNBC appearance continues to make waves. Today, GigaOm's Matthew Ingram criticizes Buffett's remarks about the need for newspapers to establish online paywalls - remarks that could be aimed at The Washington Post (WPO), in which Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A, BRK.B) owns a large stake. Ingram suggests the Post's attempts to engage readers and encourage social sharing will make an ad-based model pay off.

    Another one the grand wizard pulled off on the dorks at CNBC.
    To watch the CNBC people fawn all over Buffet is laughable and at the same time disgusting.

    Someone even LIKED that one, Tony. ... Well, not to be ... sarcastic (back), I just cannot leave it (at this yet later date). It's elegantly expressed, even. "[C]ontinu[ing] to make waves", as in "even a day later" is how I read it. I'm clearly not at the cutting edge timewise. Don't have that newfangled cable, even. [I]nging on our way. (You don't SEEM to know better, on this one, but I could be wrong.)


    On the substance: Time to buy NYT? That's what I'm wondering. Down 13% in mo., 15% on year, maybe 6-8% in the week of this bad-dish news (the SA Wedn. (2/29) piece here that links to the above). With a THRIVING paywall (per FSalmon a month ago here (at the beginning of that 13%; ah, well, HE's not a market-timer I guess; right?)). Well, if I convince you/swarms of you and I still feel this way tom'w, "let me in line" please, don't push it back to 7 RIGHT AWAY, OK? La di da, on we go, right?
