The Decline of Newspapers
"Newspapers are dinosaurs. Why would you pay several hundred dollars a year to read something a day or two old that you can read instantaneously on the Internet? Chances are you probably wouldn't, which is why people are jumping ship."
Hello? St. Louis Post Disgrace? Are you listening?
"Then there is the case of media bias. Newspapers in this country are overwhelmingly liberal. They are staffed by liberal reporters and their Op-ed pages are stocked with liberal columnists and opinion. They endorse liberal Democrats for office. People are tired of it. Newspapers are learning the same lesson CNN is learning....people are onto their game and are looking for alternate, less-biased news sources."

If you mean: why would someone pay for, generally, well research and accurate information when they can get constantly changing and more "speculation than fact" content immediately, I don't know.

One must also remember that the biggest of bias are those who kick and scream about other's being biased. They completely fail to see the hypocrisy of their own action, and are wallow in their own self-righteousness (and this is true no matter what political affiliation: neo-con [new con-artist.. err. new conservative] or dumbocrat).

Instead of being whinny little morons, who want to point out everything wrong in the world, I have a better idea. Go find someone and go out of your way to make they have a better day. Don't care if they are the same political party, skin color, religion, gender, age, sexual orientation or whatever. Just say I am going to make this world a better place, even if it means one person at a time and I don’t agree with everything that makes them who they are.
