AP report: Hard-copy newspapers dying at breakneck speed

SRAZ has frequently weighed in on Arizona’s blatantly leftist, Hilary-endorsing newspaper, verifying that it is barely hanging on to its radical perch. It is certainly suffering through some hard times, though mostly due to its stubborn bonding to a hard-left, open borders perspective and foolish refusal to stop insulting its remaining readers, most of whom are senior citizens.

On Wednesday, Associated Press substantiated our findings on a national scale. The diminishing numbers are shocking. David Bauder’s report is headlined, “U.S. newspapers continuing to die at rate of 2 each week.”

This Dec. 30, 2021, post, AZ Republic reneges on subscribers third time since Sept.,” exposed the latest money saving scam, engaged in by the failing newspaper: Non-deliveries to paying subscribers. That’s known as theft, which is a prosecutable crime under the Arizona Criminal Code Title 13. Criminal Code § 13-1802.

Newspapers have been in decline for a very long time. The Phoenix Gazette, the afternoon edition for Arizonans who wanted the most recent news, bit the dust with the advent of televised news. Then the Internet, via cell phones, which could be conveniently carried, discretely vibrating when a new report is available, signaled the demise of home-delivered newspapers, which are vanishing and will be replaced by a fully online content, incurring no need for newsprint, ink and delivery.

Hard copy news is known as a newsosaur for a reason. The La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles are a monument to prehistoric creatures. They sell tickets for access.  Even free of charge a dead newsroom, reliant on student reporters lacking editors is nothing to see.

    For the Associated Press to admit the dire circumstances newspapers are in is tantamount to depriving yourself of sustenance. David Bauder is either nearing retirement or crazy…not for what he wrote, but for divulging the truth!

    When we first moved into our neighborhood a decade ago, seeing newspapers on the driveways while we took our morning jog was not unusual. There are currently four deliveries on the same jogging route. That’s a recipe for disaster. How they are able to hire people to deliver is difficult to fathom. The gas used to deliver the papers must cost close to what the salary is. Thank Joe Biden.

    We’re serving hot dogs instead of ribs and steaks on the Fourth of July! For the first time ever, we are having a “pot luck.” Biden’s name will be mentioned as the reason for the change in festivities.

    Sorry, but this senile reader cannot comprehend the meaning of your last sentence, “Even free of charge a dead newsroom, reliant on student reporters lacking editors is nothing to see.”

    • Seeing Red AZ says:

      We were comparing the once bustling newsroom to the dead prehistoric remains at the La Brea Tar Pits, which has an admission fee. Regret it being awkward,

    Gannett stock (GCI) is selling under $3.00 a share this morning. It could be used to line the birdcage.
