Todays kids will never pick up a newspaper?
Being from Long Island I have always picked up Newsday but my favorite paper is the NYPost for it’s great pictures and headlines. As a Met fan, I enjoyed the posting from today.
As a kid I used to deliver newspapers after school. Now newspapers are delivered before 5am so it’s not a kids job anymore.
Today I just open up my laptop whenever I want, go to my Google Reader and start reading the latest news. The two newspapers that I normally read are both online and from what I can tell, the online versions and paper editions are identical.
Coupons, Sale Fliers and Classifieds can all be found online and are more up to date than the printed versions.
The NYPost and Daily News Sunday editions cost $1.25. Newsday costs $2.00 and the NYTimes comes in as a whopping $4.00.
Today’s kids will probably never pick up a newspaper so my theory is newspapers will be incredibly rare within 10 years.
