Unfortunately for newspapers and other publishers with legacy businesses, they have to make the transition somehow, and the glacial pace that most of the industry has taken — which amounts to waiting for existing print subscribers to die of natural causes and thereby solve the problem — isn’t really cutting it. They can change quickly and risk the kind of customer uproar that Netflix is experiencing, or they can move slowly and be disrupted. At least Netflix is trying to disrupt itself instead of waiting for someone else to do it.

If you haven’t watched the latest interview on MBJ-TV, you are missing out.

Marty Wiseman, the director of the John C. Stennis Institute of Government talks extensively on Haley Barbour’s possible future in the White House.

The subject is fascinating, but listening to Wiseman for any length of time is amazingly entertaining.

The interview is the third in a series of four with Wiseman that covers the political landscape about as thoroughly as possible, regardless of what side of the fence you sit.

Watch the entire series, but here is the link to Part 3 which is on right now at www.msbusiness.com.

After you have seen these, you can consider yourself informed.
