Who Killed The Newspaper? The Web In The Library With The Candlestick or TV In The Study With The Pipe?

In a Sunday Op-Ed piece, The Boston Globe’s Jeff Jacoby places more blame for the death of the daily newspaper on television than on the web. While the web has certainly accelerated the decline in readership over the past 5 years or so, Jacoby is correct in pointing out that readers began abandoning newspapers long before the web became a legitimate media channel. Jacoby also points out that predictions pertaining to the imminent demise of the dailies have surrounded the industry for at least 40 years. Perhaps none of us have a Clue.
