While many in the newspaper business are whining about the struggles some newspapers face, a few in the actual newspaper business are actually adapting and thriving. A detailed article in Fortune takes a look at how the Washington Post has thrived, while its competitors have struggled. The keys aren't too surprising: diversify away from just news, embrace new outlets for news and invest in unique investigative reporting skills. There are still plenty of questions, but it becomes clear very quickly that the Washington Post knows that it's future is quite different than it's past -- and it's not going to wait around to find out how things play out. Instead, it wants to drive news innovations forward, while others complain that nothing can be done.
