Long live the traditional newspaper!

Lorne Broker has left a new comment on your post, "Death of the newspaper industry as we know it?"

I don't see the end of newspaper industry either. I think they will always be here and people will never convert to the online news only. It's just the feeling that you have when you have a piece of paper in your hands instead of a computer screen to stare at. That will never disappear. Plus, this business will always live off ads and those will never die out. Anyways, thanks for a great article.
Dear Lorne,
Thank you for writing and the kind words. Completely agree. People are tactile which probably explains why books have not gone completely electronic. However, what the newspaper industry will have to do is develop a new business model to stop the financial hemorrhaging it's currently suffering at the hands of the internet.
