These institutions are oblivious to their own impending demise, a demise that articles like George Will's show they fully deserve.
[Update: Grist notes that Will is called out by name by his own paper for making claims contradicted by the facts...and let's call a spade a spade, given that he has been loudly and repeatedly informed of his factually incorrect claims and yet repeats them, he must be stupid or a liar.]
I won't miss the WP when its gone. In a similar vein the Associated Press is up in arms again about Google getting rich off of their content, and trying to establish a way that newspapers could demand Googlegeld, their own version of Danegeld, a tribute tax they felt entitled to get just for being listed in Google. Daggle has a good article pointing our the flawed thinking of print publishers in the internet age.
Actually, there is (of course) even more.
