The Death of Newspapers

Joseph Epstein on the disintermediation of print media:

About our newspapers as they now stand, little more can be said in their favor than that they do not require batteries to operate, you can swat flies with them, and they can still be used to wrap fish.

I buy one newspaper a week, but since that is only for the TV guide, it doesn’t really count.  I couldn’t even be said to read the on-line versions.  So where do all those links come from, you might ask?  The answer is Google News Alerts.
