The Collapse of Print
July 22, 2012 | 11:09 AM

Ray, you are partially correct. The daily's will fall first because of the overhead. Ultimately the weekly's will follow. Print is an antiquated product much like the typewriter. There is still a demand for news, it's how people consume it that's different. Look at the music industry. People still like music. When was the last time you bought a CD. People consume music by downloading on ITunes. The problem with the newspaper model online is it's broken. Your trading dollars for pennies. Without a print product, nobody makes a living on their website. For the print industry this is very painful. But remember, their demise creates huge opportunities for entrepreneurs to step in and take those dollars.
