Newspaper subscribers are declining in number, which has caused some newspapers to publish less frequently and many to shift to online content.
Those who get their news from printed newspapers tend to be older and are looking for more traditional journalism – fact based and objective.
So, if that is what the print media buying public wants, why don’t the newspapers cater to them?
