Why are newspapers still in production?

With online articles & stuff, who needs newspapers? Is it tradition? For people who don't know how to use a computer?

A bit of both, there are still lots of people who don't have computers, and there are people who do who just like the feel and format of news papers.

Hiya Deana!
Yes, would miss those black marks all over, the wind ripping the darn papers out of my hands, the way Hubby always mixes up the pages... it's a morning ceremony! Without it and my coffee I'd be a ??? not so nice person. Lol!
Have a good shift!:-).

haha thanks for the giggle wittepier. I don't do newspapers, I never liked them even before the internet, but even though I do have a Kindle I still enjoy the feel and smell of a real book at times

Anytime! Laughter/giggles good for anything!:-).
Only way to get local Island info, the paper is too small/poor to have
a web version. And yes, read some on iPad and Kindle, but still have bookshelves full! Have some great book trades here!:-).

If my iPod battery dies. What do I do for news? Newspaper doesn't have batteries.

Still in production because they provide access to stories and commentary that
might not be covered as well ...... on a small screen -

Computers are hard to use and hard to read.

Look at your grocery store's online ad sometime. Most of the ones I've seen are horrible, especially if you do not have good vision.

You can't soak in a nice warm bath holding your laptop to read the news.
