Contrary to the impression I may have given readers previously, I don’t hate newspapers (except for the Sunday LA Times, which I loath). However, I do find that I read newspapers less these days. Much less. That’s because I’m online accumulating news throughout the day from hundreds of sources.
While I doubt we’ll see the death of newspapers anytime soon, one thing is clear: newspapers need to evolve in response to the challenges presented by the Internet, and that doesn’t just mean moving more of their news coverage to the web. Print news publications need to change as well.
