Default Re: Help with an academic issue

Well, newspapers and magazines are dying left and right, and in many cases deservedly so. My local big-city paper is losing $1.5M per week, and every change they make seems to give the readers less value, not more. They won't be around for long.

In large part the print media haven't been able to deal with the internet. We all know that they haven't been able to figure out how to make a profit with their online editions. But the thing many people don't know is that they used to make a pile from their classifieds. Look in any paper today and the classifieds are nearly gone--to ebay and craigslist.
