Following on from his comment in May 2002 (as reported here) that the bulk of broadsheets will go tabloid by 2020, Mario Garcia has now revised that deadline to 2010. In an interview in the Chicago Tribune Garcia said that events of the past two years, especially in the UK, have contributed to the increasing acceptance of smaller formats in the US. The article also quotes Harold Evans — e.g. “If I’d been editing the Times I would not have gone small tabloid. I’d have gone for the size the Guardian’s going to”.
