“I’m not going to go after print media tonight because it’s illegal to attack an endangered species.”

Offred & The Boston Globe. Dark times.

Watching The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu? You should be. S2E2 finds Offred/June taking refuge in The Boston Globe, mourning the deaths of journalists.

Handmaid’s is a dark, dark series and this latest entry gets even darker. Hard to admit that it’s all very believable.

A woman will draw an 85-year-old girl

Screen Shot 2018-04-19 at 5.24.20 PM.pngComics always draws an emotional response, and when the artist changes, well, then all bets are off. In this case, “Nancy” is now drawn by a woman.

Andrews McMeel Syndication will announce that the cartoonist Olivia Jaimes has inherited the iconic strip and will provide a “21st-century female perspective,” says John Glynn, Andrews McMeel’s president and editorial director.

 

Good grief! The last thing we need…

… is a tariff that no one asked for that will cost American jobs. More blows to the U.S. NewsPAPER industry.

I’m sure there are more stories and editorials about this, but here are a few:

Tariffs on paper will hurt us, and our readers

You have read about the new tariffs on imported aluminum and steel, and on products from China. Now it seems our own business — newspaper printing and publishing — will take some casualties in a trade war over paper.

Trump’s Tariffs Are Already Costing American Jobs

Tariffs on Canadian paper, imposed at the behest of a New York hedge fund, are claiming 50 U.S. jobs — so far.

US publishers worry about pricier newsprint with new tariffs

Newspaper publishers across the U.S. already strapped by years of declining revenue say they’re dealing with an existential threat: Recently imposed tariffs on Canadian newsprint driving up their business costs.

It’s not surprising that President Trump, after campaigning on the promise of a more aggressive trade policy, would take aim at China. It’s an economic competitor and geostrategic rival with whom the U.S. ran a $375 billion trade deficit in 2017.

Editorial:  Drop counterproductive tariffs on imported Canadian newsprint

It’s not surprising that President Trump, after campaigning on the promise of a more aggressive trade policy, would take aim at China. It’s an economic competitor and geostrategic rival with whom the U.S. ran a $375 billion trade deficit in 2017.

Sing a song, a Newspaper song!

 

This is more of a ditty, but here are some full-length newspaper songs:

I don’t know why this is called Newspaper Song… If you can figure it out please let me know.

I guess this one can be considered a “classic”

 

Again, What the what??!

A sort of remake of the above Eddie Fischer song

 

This is a funny one!

One for the kids from back in the day — guessing the Eighties:

No lyrics here, but the Stomp crew does newsprint some mad justice

Of course, Pete Seeger sang about newspapers and Newspaper Men … it’s wonderful to represent the Press

And finally, I’m going out on the limb for this one, but since I don’t speak Punjabi, I’m not 100 percent or even 1 percent sure this is about newspapers, but hey, they hold up newspapers in several scenes and I do hear the English word, Newspaper in there, so we’ll say yes to this one!
