ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of cable television (TV) in saving the newspaper industry in the U.S. It is noted that the purchase of "Newsday" by Cablevision Systems Corp. for $650 million might be a way for other cable companies to invest in the newspaper industry. According to analysts, the two mediums have a legacy of bitter competition that is hard to set aside which reflects diverse corporate cultures of print and TV, with newspapers more risk-adverse and conservative.
