Print Journalism: A Thing of the Past

Times are no longer how they once were. Will there be a day when you wake up and there won’t be a newspaper at your doorstep or in your mailbox? What is the future of the paper?


What is causing the decline in print journalism? According to Knight Digital Media Center the lose of revenue is due to the declining number of classified ads in the paper. With sites on the internet like craiglist and ebay it seems less likely to pay the fees to have your ad in the paper.

For most people the news is just a mere click away. By using the internet to search for your news you can search topics and find the news more efficiently.

The papers that seem to be affected the most from the transition to digital media are the smaller papers. 150-year-old Rocky Mountain News and the 146-year-old Seattle Post-Intelligencer both closed their doors earlier this year.

So the question is how will you take your news? Print or Digital
