Newspapers cannot regain readers…

1/15/2010:

Today’s “Friday Fun with 411” segment…

A day late and a dollar short?

Most of us know that the newspaper industry is a dying breed. As much as they scramble to “re-invent” themselves, it’s apparent the way of the world is changing – and since they refused to believe what was happening right in front of their eyes, they ended up being a bit too late to the game.

With that being said – I found this funny cartoon in my files – and it shows that there’s a glimmer of hope that newspapers can still indeed regain their readers.

I happen to like the upper right image the best – Very funny and true!

What about those individuals who cannot afford or have access to computers and such? Some prefer to watch it on television, they have implemented many devices for the blind and the deaf etc.

Hmmm, I can either:
a) go to the New York Times web site and read all of the news that’s fit to print, or
b) wait until tomorrow morning, spend $2 and read all of the news that’s fit to print.

Gee, tough decision. Higher prices, smaller product, nothing that happens after 10 pm makes the morning news, and they expect me to buy it? Sorry, your business model is dead.

On top of the wait and the $2, be charged with shepherding said newspaper to recycling or just not giving a hoot about the planet. I’ve never had to bundle and put to curb a pile of online pages. However, I’ve never wedged a door open with an online page either.

I’ve got an idea, why don’t they still charge the same 50c to $1.25 rates for a newspaper even though it isn’t voluminous enough to paper the bottom of a canary cage. That’ll help volume.

Holy qwerty Batman! I just realized that there is no longer a “cent” symbol on keyboards! Wot the heck?!
