It’s no secret that print media is dying. Instead of reading the paper, news-seekers are turning to the internet where the information is always up to date. Granted, there are some glossy picture magazines that serve better via print than online, but that number is getting smaller every day. Clients still see print news as the top tier, but over the past 12 months, that has started to shift.
With Congress holding hearings to consider the Newspaper Revitalization Act in an effort to save newsstand fodder, is it time to make the decision to pull the plug once and for all? Don’t get me wrong, I believe that print media is just as, if not more valuable than online news, solely for the fact that you have to have some credentials to be published in a print newspaper. Online, there is no regulation so there are tons of everyday folks with no real knowledge but just want an outlet for their thoughts. Although finding credible news and stories online takes a bit more time than print, is it really worth the government bailing out the entire newspaper market? Personally I don’t think so.
I’m sure there are people on both sides of this argument, and we would love to hear your thoughts. Leave them in the comments below.
