Is this the hardest hitting newspaper editorial in the entire history of hard-hitting newspaper editorials?

This just in from USA Today (Dec. 12):

A president who would all but call Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand a whore is not fit to clean the toilets in the Barack Obama Presidential Library or to shine the shoes of George W. Bush.

WOW!

And it goes on from there. Read and remember. You likely won’t read a harder-hitting newspaper editorial. At least for a couple of months

Interesting article here. Get a load of this statistic:

more than 95% of all newspapers sold are home deliveries

Holy smokes!! And that number is climbing!~!!

But, as with all newspapers, those stats are thanks to the older generation. The youngsters are following a similar world-wide pattern of going digital first and not so much with the printed edition.

The Daily’s Collegian front page announcing the change.

After 130 years, The Daily Collegian student newspaper at Penn State will cease daily publication and print only on Mondays and Thursdays.

It’s been decades since I was a college student toiling away on a student newspaper, but I’m surprised that the staff held out this long, but they explain why:

This transition is one we have tried to avoid, not out of resistance to try something new, but out of our own selfish desires to uphold the tradition the Collegian has been building for 130 years.

Seems like college students should be more interested in innovation rather than tradition, but it’s not impossible to do both.

Fake Movie Newspaper: Gremlins fan edition

GREMLINS: RECALL is a fan film.

Kudos for mocking up a fake movie newspaper the (I can’t make out where) Telegram.

However, in the scene before this, if you look closely, the inside is the real newspaper Los Angeles Times.

Indy filmmakers have to watch those pennies. I guess printing a fake newspaper in its entirety is way to expensive.

Let’s see online do this!

At the end of the SEC Championship Game I saw The Atlanta Journal-Constitution pop up in some of the crowd shots.

Obviously the AJC printed this UGA version ahead of time so it would be ready to go at the end of the game. Still, pretty powerful impact of the local newspaper.

I thinking it will be years, if ever, before someone holds up a tablet following a game with a similar web page.
