    “What’s a newspaper? And who cares anymore?”
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    A newspaper is a bunch of pages of paper with lots of words. It doesn’t weigh very much and you can take it with you. It covers lots of local news that the big networks don’t think is worth their while to mention.
    I used to read the newspaper every morning with my coffee. However my eyesight began to be less than 20/20, so I stopped subscribing to it.
    Now, I read it on my laptop easily, because I can enlarge the size of the letters. Long live Technology!

    What matters is that newspapers, like the Washington Post, are a counterbalance to the total B.S. sold to us by corporations and corrupt politicians. If we didn’t have independent reporters, we’d still believe that cigarettes are healthy, that human-caused climate change is a hoax, that deregulation is good for the economy, and that tax cuts pay for themselves. Because we’ve got people who’s job is to report the truth, we can spot flim-flam artists who are interested in lining their own pockets at our expense.

    Print is dead. BUT you need good stringers, reporters, journalists, editors. Brand name recognition doesn’t hurt either. I would not be surprised at all if CNN, NBC-News, Fox News and the like will soon be out of business, online-wise. Quality pays. Oh, well, forget about Fox then…

    I dropped our local rag (The San Diego Union Tribune) some time ago when it became incredibly partisan and lacking in all content. It was taken over by a conservative owner and absorbed its competition (The North County Times). I think the new owners learned from their absorbed newspaper, as it returned to a very rich and well-balanced formula. It’s worth buying every week, at least on Sunday. Print is not dead.

    I get the Sunday Tampa Bay Times and clip enough coupons to pay for the subscription.
    Some of the stories are in the free online tbt* newspaper but the soy on paper is easier to read.

    We have the Scum Sentinel and the Miami Heraldo in Sunny Isles. None worth reading. I now look to on line sources like the Flipboard app. My father on the other hand prefers the Miami Herald, which used to have great journalist until they started getting rid of them during the newspaper crisis. Good print is hard to find. Miami Times is okay, but its mostly about crooked politicians and pot laws. Meh.

    I’m not sure that the Washington Post qualifies as any kind of counter balance. They aren’t real well known for balanced, impartial coverage these days. Still, I think it will be interesting to see what Bezos does with them. Maybe he can make them relevant again.
