This is a good idea, but I do not trust DC to execute it very well at all.

Maybe they should have him do something as current as working for a print newspaper, like being a telegraph operator or the town blacksmith.

Because the Daily Planet didn't have an online edition like EVERY OTHER NEWSPAPER IN THE COUNTRY, right? :roll:

You've summed up the New 52 concept pretty well there.

The last good idea DC executed right was Sinestro Corps. Everything else has blown up in their face or they didn't give it enough time to pan out.

That's not the point. The point is most newspapers and magazines already have a presence online. They're hardly stuck in the "telegraph operator or the town blacksmith" era.

Which "online news sites" are you talking about, anyway? The Huffington Post? I'd hardly call that a "news" site. TMZ? Not quite the New York Times There? World Net Daily? Conspiracy spank central. Yahoo! News? I see a lot of AP stories there.

Many of the on-line writers for newspapers are all freelance, and office space is reduced to the bare minimum.

Clark would have been fired from a real job years ago, anyway.

How about the regular reporters? The ones whose stories show up both in print and online editions?

I'm sure Clark's incredible ability to get all those scoops on Superman helped him keep his job working for the Planet.

Ala Newsweek announcement this week that it was abandoning print media. I give their paywall website 6 months.

Paywalls will probably the print media's biggest hurdle in jumping over to total online presence.
