Gee, does this mean when we graduate kids from high school that cannot read, that newspapers will lose sales? If so, watch out MSM, because the big hurt is still to come. I'm happy to see them lose their influence, and their ciculation. Less money=fewer liberal "journalists", which is good for all of us.
It will be a great day when the US Military has all the weapons and ammo it needs, and the NYT has to hold a bake sale in order to give Maureen Dowd her drinking money.
I find this somehow questionable!
How about the NY Post? It seems the Post and the WSJ (both of which have a conservative slant) are the only newspapers gaining readers...
IMHO the newspapers are paying the price for printing drivel. Pick up a newspaper, read a news article, then write down the facts that you learned. I think that you won't have many to list.
Another point is that their obvious bias is loosing readership.
The last time I picked up a Providence Journal, the entire front page was nothing but distortions, propaganda and outright lies.
Why pay for that when its everywhere in the lamestream for free.
"The Star Tribune in Minneapolis lost a bit in daily, down 0.2% to 374,528. Sunday the paper took a hit, down 6% to 636,977."
Ahhhh! Sweets to the sweet!
Gee, too bad they insulted 50% of their readers and they went elsewhere.
Haven't bought a Sunday paper in over a year.
Liberals should love it, look at all the trees being saved.
