    The edition must be on the economy.

    Newspapers are folding. Yesterday the Seattle Post Intelligencer printed it’s final paper. I will miss having a daily paper. My daily has cut back and has become half the size it used to be.

    If the newspapers really want to stay in business, they need to do two things. One, raise the advertising rates. Two, give the papers away for free in their local market. The advertizers will gladly pay more if everyone in the city reads the paper. With price no longer an issue, more people than ever will read it, and the increased ad space charges will keep them afloat.

    Edcole1961, peculiar thing is I pay a very high price for the International Herald Tribune because of very limited advertising among other things.

    Cleokaya says newspapers are folding. Sometimes they just don’t fold right and it takes several tries, especially when trying to get to the comics page.

    EdCole offers a new business plan to save the newspapers. I wonder why no newspaper has thought of it before. Could it be that the reason people are not reading newspapers is NOT the price? (Keep your day job, Ed.)

    Here’s hoping that, , the new online home of some of the former staff of the Rocky Mountain News is a success.

    A real double-entendre, given nasty economy and newspapers now crumbling.

    Hold the phone……..I never heard of a dog eating or even trying to eat a key. It just don’t smell like food.

    Not 100% true. I read all my comics online. I read all my news (including Dear Abby) on my HTC P4000 with “telus pocket explorer”) and I get my local news at 11pm … I haven’t touched a ‘real’ newspaper (24hrs and Metro which are 100% free) in nearly 3 months.

    Same here, I haven’t bought a newspaper in probably 10 years at least. The only time I read the paper is the courtesy ones at A&W, Arby’s, etc.

    Edcole: Here in suburban Seattle, the King County Journal has been replaced with a series of free papers called the [name of city] Reporter. They used to publish twice a week, but now most of them are down to once a week.

    Also, the Journal had comics, but the Reporters don’t. My grandmother misses Over the Hedge, and she doesn’t have a computer. After the Journal folded, she switched to the PI. Oops.

    It looks like a videotape for loss of loved ones at the cemetery. Speaking of the newspaper, I stop buying the newspapers because papers are such a waste to print and sell for high prices. So I rather surf on the online for news, comics and etc.

    Since the PI and the Seattle Times had a joint operating agreement (one press, one advertising dept, same delivery person) those of us who took the PI were automatically switched to the Times. The times did take some of the comics. The PI is now online, I haven’t checked it out yet.

    So that’s where they went. Not only did they raise the price of my daily this week they also removed all the newpaper machines from the street corners.

    It appears I’m the only one to still get the paper…of course, even we just take it on the weekends because we’re both in school and don’t have time to read the dailies…(and then there’s my overwhelming guilt factor about the recycling thing…)
