Yesterday at the Newspaper Association of America's Mid-Year Review, Matt Ferguson said he doesn't consider Craigslist and other sites with free employment classifieds to be much of a competitive threat. "The problem with free is that you don't invest in the technology, you don't invest in the customer service, you don't invest in the sales people. You don't invest in the things that are the differentiators in this business," he said. "I don't think there's a free model in the future."
