Do you think newspapers will survive in their present form, or do you believe that the Internet threatens their survival?

Do you believe print newspapers should survive—that is, that they are necessary?

I definitely think in the near future we wont be printing them in developed societies, like the U.S, where almost everyone has access to the internet via mobile phone or laptop, tablet, etc.

The internet doesn't really have a physical presence, so you can't use the internet to kill flies.

Newspapers Vs The Internet! is my new math rock band name.

Newspapers will keep going because people like to read them to feel safe and frightened at the same time. Papers will usually show the governments story of events whereas articles on the internet are normally derided as lunacy if they go against the general consencus.

I was going to say that you can't house-train your dog with the internet, but with all the shit you can find on here, I'm not so sure anymore. It's clear that someone's been shitting all over it, could have been dogs.

Most places on the internet that post things don't have an editorial point of view, or even a reason to tell the truth in a lot of places. It's a lot of information, but it's not filtered or checked. Newspapers will likely always exist as a control for (mostly) unbias and fact checked news.

Lol @ me reading the news paper at home while on my android.

The last time I saw anyone under 65 reading a newspaper was last year. I was a bit shocked, I thought it was a dead medium. I have an online The New York Times subscription for $0.99/wk (which I had forgotten that I had until now). It's a good deal, and I can't imagine why anyone would prefer a physical copy except for not being comfortable with technology.

Then again, cassettes were being released again a few years ago in the alternative rock scene for like five seconds, who knows what'll happen?

I love to have my vag pounded by guys who make lame threads on the internet!

This thread topic is gold. I've been on this website for 8 years and I've never come up with anything like this. So yeah. Great job TS[457undead].

i'm 20 and still read the paper occasionally

i don't read the editorials though
#17
I would pay for the Star if they could keep up the quality of old. My nan worked there for years and I do miss the appeal of enjoying my morning coffee while reading the paper.

The local classifieds are still pretty useful, especially for small town newspapers

craigslist is kinda famous for being sketchy so I can imagine that people avoid it for that reason

You can't wipe your ass on the internet when you run out of toilet roll, so I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that newspapers will be around for a while longer

I love waking up in the morning to go sit out on the balcony with a glass of milk and the newspaper. When I was little I used to wake up at 5am so I could grab the paper as soon as the delivery person got in the elevator and be the first one to read it. I will continue to patronise print media.

Newspapers still have their roll

They are much cheaper, for instance, a pub to get a few papers delivered every day than maintain an active internet source for people to look at exclusively any given days news

for home use though they're mostly useless in comparison to the internet, unless you own a fireplace or don't have internet, I'd also much rather be seen in public reading a newspaper than a computer

pretty sure newspapers are far from gone
It's over simplified, So what!
