Daily papers don’t have nearly the impact they used to

Shift has a story by Neil Morton, who says daily papers don\’t have nearly the impact and influence they used to. He says a new generation of news seekers are growing up on the net and for them, the print papers aren\’t even an option, they tend to end up on the online version.

\”Many 12- to 35-year-olds now view Salon and Slashdot as seminal news sources, news sources their parents likely haven\’t even heard of.

We go out and discuss various viewpoints on political events in threads and discussion boards rather than having them dictated to us by op-ed pages with their own agenda.
