Who still reads newspapers?  After two hours, this is all we found.

  1. Newspapers are struggling because news is free through the internet. They either need to adapt (natural selection) or disappear altogether. The format of the newspaper needs to change. They should tap into the social networking craze and possibly look to do more with in depth interviews in the papers main sections. They should build on the family sections and possibly create discussion sections concerning world events and critical issues, giving regular people more of a chance to get published. They should have an internet site included in the subscription rate that has the Headline Stories. Basically the overall plan and strategy needs to change or the next time you go out for two hours the page will be blank!
