I think we are not far off from seeing the end of the newspaper altogether. I cancelled mine a few years ago. By the time it was delivered, I already had found everything I had an interest in that day online.

The real reason Newspapers resist the changes you want is the same reason Big Media is shrinking nation wide. LAZINESS! Correspondents are by far the laziest profession in America. The dont dig. Anyway ton of thanks for submit article.

Sales and publications of traditional newspapers have been in decline for the past few years. Free local newspapers still have their place and local businesses still see the value of marketing and ad spend. Of course the decline has been due to online media and mobile communications. Traditional broadsheets are now big players online and the UK nationals now have a significant presence online. However, there will always be a place for the traditional newspaper. Who wants to lie in bed on a Sunday morning with their laptop reading the news?

A few disagreements: Stock tables are an easy hit, but look at the knock-along consequences. A recent story in E&P said that 67 percent of senior executives now rank the Internet as their No. 1 source for business news versus newspapers, up 37 percent over the last four years. These are well-heeled readers and often family breadwinners who determine family spending patterns, so you really don't want to piss them off. But you did that by eliminating stock tables and cut back on business news. Look also at the success of the Wall Street Journal on this front, and that newspaper continues to print stock reports. So, yes, you can cut stock tables, but there will be blood if you do it, as newspapers are finding out. Advertisers follow money, so are going to the Internet where family breadwinners now get their news. Only a few hundred people are affected, but it is that key demographic you want to keep if you want to survive. 2. Sure, you can get comics and features on the Internet, but how many people click on comic sites daily? Not that many, I bet, because it is so clumsy to use these sites and comparatively so easy to read a newspaper page. It is a matter of efficiency, something that is a plus for newspapers, and you have to have some regular comfortable and familiar furniture in your paper. 3. You sure should have the 15,001st reporter at the convention if he/she is providing you local news on your delegation others aren't providing. If they are there covering Obama/McCain or doing color, I would agree with you. But I can see an argument for original content even in a flooded event. I would make this same argument for Congress and Washington news, with the caveat it has to be local and original. 4. Agree with you on eliminating the editorial board and national columnists. The Internet provides a vast sea of opinion, and I frankly don't care what my local editor thinks about gun control in Washington, D.C. I might like an opinion on the need for more zebra crossings at the downtown park, or the need for more efficient garbage collection. 5. Agree warmly on local-local, and more local. I can't make the council sessions, so I count on newspapers to tell me everything that happened. I want to know about all local crimes and fires. I want to know about local taxes and changes in traffic patterns affecting my commute.

Hello Mr. Jarvis You might not be wrong in what you are saying. It is your opinion. But I believe that other aspects such as jobs and tradition are important. Buying newspapers is a tradition to many people. For some when you buy your bread in the morning, you also buy your newspaper! While waiting for someone or something you read your newspaper. It is anchored in many people's lifes. Newspapers also offer jobs to more people than online publishers do. Society should care about people's welfare first. And one good way is to create jobs for more people! Thanks for allowing us to put our comments, that's a brilliant idea!! Mayelle
