Recent advancements in technology have caused newspapers to become less and less popular over the years. Especially with things like iPads and smart phones. If someone can google a topic or a current event for free and in an instant why would they go out of their way to get a newspaper? I really think that newspapers will soon follow in the footsteps of CDs and DVDs. Almost everything is now accessible online. Blockbuster went out of business along with almost every CD store I know. I truly think that it’s only a matter of time before newspaper companies have to fold as well or at least find a new way of providing their information.
“Let me begin with a proposition: The market for clear and sharp writing about timely subjects will never disappear. However, its form at the point of delivery either is changing or has already changed, and this trend line seems irreversible. Those bemoaning the demise of print journalism are likely too late; newspapers, as we now know them, will not remain the way they are today for long.”
I think this author said it best. There are always going to be updates about what is going on in the world around us. However things such as newspapers will soon cease to exist and a new medium will have to be found. The most efficient way of delivering news is no longer on paper. In general, people today want things done much faster. They want to be able to click on an app or type something into google to get their answers.
