Off the news or on the news

CNN has bounced back to life, it is reported in today's International Herald Tribune.

They did this through getting away from off-the-news chat (comme chez Renard) to hard news (and indeed business and editorial departments going off together for luxury retreats, working on some Exxon op-ed space perhaps).

Does this mean newspapers need to get "off-the-news"?

I think not. Print can't compete in a 24 news cycle when you are constantly 24 hours behind, so leave that to CNN and indeed, get off your proverbial (but not like Fox) and off-the-news.

Unless you are scooping it.
