Editors, and how bad ones are ruining the newspaper business
Hello Little Printer, available 2012 from BERG on Vimeo.
I hate to see the paper fail, but if more people who wer ticked off about the way these newspapers are doing business would just quit buying the paper, maybe these people in charge would finally understand that they ruined it. I do not buy the paper, not even for the coupons on Sunday. I go online and register for my coupons and do very well. There are also coupon clubs. I go to funeral home websites to read the obituaries and I get my news from television or from the mlive website. It's their fault for putting the news online free in the beginning. This summer I almost bought a newspaper because I wanted to paint some furniture and needed something to catch the drips, then I realized a couple of torn up garbage bags would work fine. I miss the newspaper the way it used to be, nothing against the people writing for it now, but they don't have the same fire and god knows its probably because they are trying to work 24/7 for far less pay and benefits. they aren't treated like professional news gatherers so why should I expect professional news gathering out of them.As for the advertising, well they can keep it. I buy and sell online and I never, ever look at a newspaper ad for information. I am not old and I'm in my 50s so I remember when it was good and I hate what it has become.
