I was posting on a different message board a few hours ago and referred to a story in a newspaper I'd bought - but I hadn't read it in the paper, just online, I buy two newspapers per week just to cover all bases when looking for work.
So newspapers really do have to change or die, the London Evening Standard's sale for two bucks to a Russian businessman shows that the change is still ongoing. I think while people need jobs and rooms for rent and other things that revolve around classified ads, there will always be physical newspapers you can pick up - just maybe not with 20 sections on the weekend. How I don't miss the Saturday Guardian anymore.
Also it depends what you read, I'm not in Canada to enjoy the Globe and Mail on the weekend, I can only read the website, when following Canadian affairs.
