Why Newspapers Still Exist

We here at FishbowlLA think we may have solved a big mystery. For more than a decade, the majority of newspapers in America have given their print content away online for free. How in the world did they manage to do that and stay in business? Well, according to a study by the Pew Internet Project, one in five Americans still don’t use the Internet. Of that one in five, half don’t go online because “they don’t think the Internet is relevant to them.” That equals 30 million Americans who don’t think that newfangled Internetz is worth all the hubbub. Not a bad pot of people to sell newspapers to.
