Newspapers essential for democracy in digital world

Very interesting article to read at: http://www.editorandpublisher.com/eandp/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003936789

However, some key information’s about the article below.

— Newspapers are very much alive and growing when you consider the print and online audience together. And they talk to far more people than their radio, television and Internet competitors.

— Newspapers have earned the public’s trust because they employ professional journalists to verify news for truth, accuracy and context, and they are usually the first source of local news.

– Advertisers continue to invest in newspapers because they deliver results. They still move goods and services more reliably than other forms of promotion.

— Newspapers remain essential to our democratic system of government, serving as a watchdog against crime and corruption, and a guide dog for information that allows the public to make informed decisions on the issues of the day.
