This is a good article. I love when people post on this ticker. I do not believe that newspapers are a viable business stragety. It may cause television stations, who are already hurting to start overpaying for a bleeding wound. Newspaper are archaic. Television still has not been taken over yet by another means. Is the time coming when personal devices like iphones, personal tv's, computers etc are going to kill off television. I don't see it yet. Television, movie theaters etc are a place where people convene to "get away" for social, entertainment and lots of reasons. Newspapers do not have that same viability. They provide information and circulation is majorly decreasing and the internet has become a much better source of information.
Are there a large group of people that still need that hard copy paper, YES, are they decreasing in numbers as well, YES. Let newspapers run their course and die. Don't give more bad debt to struggling broadcast companies.
