Are newspapers a thing of the past or at least headed that way? There are certainly many who believe so. Last year’s $0.25 price hike was in response to many issues facing the newspaper business of which I’m sure is also the decline in sales. I’m not certain whether I’d be allowed to defend them or how good my defense would even be considering the fact that I’m not a subscriber to any local newspaper and only once in a while will I buy a copy. But if it came to doing away with them altogether I think I’d miss seeing the front page at the grocery store, gas station, etc.
For those of you who agree I found a website which offers a jpeg image of the front page of most world newspapers. In a way the internet has not only not done away with newspapers (yet) but it’s allowing us to view the world’s top stories through the front pages of almost all of our world papers. See here:
