Posted on 02/06/2023 1:14:54 PM PST by PJ-Comix
Who out there would actually pay $4.50 for the weekday edition of a newspaper consisting of only 26 pages total? That is an even bigger mystery than how newspapers think they can get away with charging that much for their ultra-thin newspapers. Oh, and I would love to know the TRUE circulation numbers of the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel. I've seen the "official" circulation figure and no way does the real circulation come close to what they are pretending for the benefit of the few advertisers they have left.
That’s really expensive bird cage liner.
We lost our ‘hometown’ newspaper..............
Our area newspaper moved out of state—literally—production plant, offices, all of it.
So—I guess they no longer qualify as a “hometown” newspaper.
They are the “Hartford” Courant.
Newspapers have no problem lying to their readers—so they certainly would have no hesitation in lying to their remaining sucker advertisers.
Same here in Williamsport, PA.
Who needs it?
Newspapers are obsolete.
The internet sounded their death knell.
Who gets a newspaper anymore?
Post Gazette is $5.50 a week, if you pay for the year... you get 1 actual physical sunday paper a week and the rest is digital.
I stopped buying the local papers about 3 years ago. Used to get the Sunday edition for the comics, crossword, & coupons. Last one I bought was $6.
News content mostly fluff or way-liberal bent - only a few pages of it.
IMHO, taking advantage of senior citizens, many of whom still have newspaper rituals.
I won’t even read The Boca Breeze
Pinko Commie rag!
A sad consequence of the internet killing newspapers is that there is few or no reliable sources of local and state news any longer.
Its dangerous too. Every American now gets fed only national political narratives, and become hyped by leftist/deep-state news control over internet and social-media.
Central government, central news, central politics.
Another sign our federal republic is dead.
Ours is a Gannett-owned rag. Enough said.
I was one of those people who had the paper delivered every day and read it cover to cover - world/national news, local news/OpEd, business, sports and entertainment (live theater, movies, books, restaurants, comics.) I also had favorite columnists and looked forward to my daily 20-30 minutes with the paper, either during work lunch break or after work or with breakfast on the weekends.
I can’t remember exactly when, but reading the paper slowly went from being a pleasure to being almost a chore, so I stopped.
I wonder how many people get the paper these days. I pick up a section once in a blue moon at the car servicing place or the eye doctor and they’re very slim with little content now.
Plus people don’t read and their children don’t see them reading.
I use to tell non-reading parents to subscribe to a newspaper and at least let their kids see them looking at the sports page, or for sales.
Dropped the rags decades ago.
Nothing but leftist bilge.
The worst was the LA Times. Why get pissed off every time you get the rag and see the hate.
1.75 for Greensburg, PA daily I think. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette only publishes twice a week & I don’t know prices as I rarely see it. So I buy my mom a paper from a small town in next county and most if the local news is irrelevant to her. We used to have 2 major papers in City, before the 1960s even more. Of course we were much more important then.
When I moved to New Mexico in ‘92 Albuquerque had a morning and afternoon paper. It’s now down to just the morning, pretty thin and $2.00.
