Everybody just reads online now. I'm not sure it's all ideological.

I agree. The local paper just started putting up billboards with conservative columnists prominantly displayed. However, why should I purchase a paper to read edited versions of stuff I read online three days ago?

Also, who needs the hassle of all the extra paper around the house? Newspapers are going online, but they haven't figured out a good profit method, yet. Many small newspapers were put out of business by all ad papers like the Greensheet and Wooden Nickel, which killed their advertising base. People don't go to online newspaper sites to read their ads, they search Google or EBay, and most people will NOT pay for online content, as similar content can be found for free.

Probably not but I still subscribe to four conservative magazines and various technical journals. I quit reading the local newspaper many years ago after I subscribed to the the National Review and later the American Spectator. I really just lost interest in the paper and I was ticked off with it anyway.

Not true in my case.  I used to read USAtoday daily as well as the 'net news sites.  No longer.  Why should I support papers that I no longer respect or trust?
