Video description

In this 2006 interview, Frank Blethen and Mike Fancher discuss the Seattle Times on its 110th Anniversary, talking about the joys and challenges of running a locally owned family newspaper. They touch upon the uniqueness of this business model in the modern newspaper industry and the family’s commitment to journalistic values and community service.

The conversation addresses media and newspaper consolidation and Blethen’s role as one of the few newspaper owners willing to speak out about these public policy issues. The two reflect on their desires to preserve journalistic standards while focusing on some of the challenges and concerns facing the newspaper industry and its affect on American culture.
