A newsagent without newspapers
From The Times Online, a piece that reflects the slow demise of the print newspaper. The author seems surprised that her local newsagent no longer sells newspapers.
I wanted a Times, a Post and hell, why not push the boat out another 25c a Daily News. There was nothing there. Nor was there going to be, ever again. My local newsagent doesn’t sell news anymore.
When I asked in a state of shock where the papers were, he told me his days of selling newspapers were over. It was “too much bother” and “not worth it”, he said.
It’s probably not a surprise to those of us who live on the intertubes – just another small milestone on the road to the end of print.
