Answer by Marc Bodnick:

This is a great question. I think you'd have to say that there may be no good replacement. Maybe aggregators like Google News, Twitter, and Wikipedia will evolve to offer similar completeness. But in general I don't think any company will have much of an incentive to be a "paper of record."
