Newspapers pwned by Internet


This should come to a shock to no-one, but the steady diet of news available online is weakening the power of the once mighty newspaper. I agree with the author of this Slate column, who says by the time he glances at print, the stories feel old. But on the other hand, I still go out of my way most weekends to kick back with the Saturday Globe and Mail, because reading an actual newspaper that doesn’t change, blink or entice me down numerous side-roads is a different and fairly pleasant experience.
