Regardless of what you think of Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, you gotta love his latest blog post:

Where Newspapers kick the Internets behind

Here's a really, really rich guy who gets home from a playoff basketball game and wants more info, so he surfs the Web looking for more info. Can't find it at Yahoo! Sports. Not happy with ESPN.com. Finally goes to bed. Gets up and reads the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Now he's happy because he's getting more original content from ink on paper than from various Internet sources.

Mark Cuban is not unlike a lot of sports fans (except for his millions). Frankly, he's a lot like political junkies and other news addicts. Providing original, compelling content is what separates newspapers from other information sources.
