Why I’m Glad Newspapers are Dying, And “Special Rights”
Yesterday, a popular local columnist was in the place that I work. Playing the sympathetic local newspaper reader, I asked him if the paper was going to hang on. His answer was what you might expect. He hoped so.
Please don’t take the title of the post in the wrong fashion. I don’t want anybody to lose their jobs or their livelihood. I don’t wish ill on anyone. But the reality of life in America is that newspapers have long been, and continue to be, purveyors of liberal babbling. Our local paper, and this columnist, included.
They’re done for. They’re clinging to an outmoded way of spreading news. News that must pass through their filter before we read it anyways.
I have never been a subscriber, nor has my family, to the local paper. I read the part I want to read online, the sports section, whenever I want to read it.
We have enough nonsense circulating through, as Rush has recently begun to call it: “The State-Run Media.” We don’t need newspapers adding to the nonsense. Go to Drudge Report.
This isn’t an article, per se, but it’s a tough night for me to write, so I’ve given a bit of a switch-up. Hope it’s enjoyed.
