Media_httppewresearch_zrgev

According to the Pew Research Center poll, most Americans say that newspapers will go the way of the 8-track in the next 40 years.

I happen to think that those folks are being overly optimistic. It won’t take 4 decades. Try one or two for the traditional newspaper be fade away.

The new beast go by a new name (suggestions anyone?) and will be online except for the highly expensive “print” issue that they’ll offer as keepsakes and for executives too busy to boot up their iWhatchamacallits.
