The article discusses the highlights of the Argyle Executive Forum on Leadership in Media held in New York on April 30, 2008. A group of executives associated with old media complained of a lack of profit, as well as the lack of a clear new business model in the Internet era. According to Norman Pearlstine of Carlyle Group, the newspaper business did not enjoy the double-digit margins that characterized the 1980s and 1990s. Microsoft's Thomas Rubin contends that there is a need for Internet players to become stewards of intellectual content.
