MediaPost Publications – ’05 Proving To Be Worst Newspaper Year Since Recession – 10/31/2005 Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your point of view) print newspapers will very shortly be D-E-A-D. I can’t remember the last time I read an actual newspaper. I do of course read plenty of newspaper contect (SFGate, NY Times, etc.) but it’s all online. If I can’t be connected, I print out stories and take them with me.
