Who needs newspapers? We all do!

Happy New Year everyone!

I thought I’d start the year off with a story from the Rome News-Tribune by media critic, Jason Salzman.

I thought the title “Newspapers are the life’s blood that Internet parasites suck on” was compelling enough to make me read further.  And, I’m glad I did.

I think he makes a good argument for why we all need to continue to support newspapers and why they should thrive in the future.

Of course, all of us who are addicted to PressDisplay, love newspapers, and many of us also like to read blogs that comment on newspaper articles.

So my perfect world is a nice combination of both traditional media and the blogging community, where together they provide readers with best of journalism with the broadest in commentary from all parts of the globe.

What do you think?
