I ask because I no longer subscribe to my local newspapers…I read them online for free. I have noticed two things since doing this:
- I spend a lot less time reading newspapers…just the headlines and a few editorials
- I’ve noticed just how much crap makes it into print…you know, those slimelittle"human interest" stories, and the often poorly researched crap that passes for news.
Now, the newspapers are bombarding me with offers for subscriptions…but I am perectly happy to read them for free…do newspapers actually MAKE money with their online versions? Or have they just succeeded in ramming another nail into their coffins?
