The problem is not everyone is on the 'net', into electronic readers, etc; plus this: “It is the purpose of the First Amendment to preserve an uninhibited marketplace of ideas in which truth will ultimately prevail, rather than to countenance monopolization of that market, whether it be by the Government itself or a private licensee.

On the other hand, fewer are paying for it. Search engines, such as Google, make it easier to look up information, but they're pirates that make money off print content without paying for it. Facebook and Twitter get our names in front of new noses for free, which is good, but those sites require constant care and feeding.

For young readers, paperless newspapers are preferable because they're presumed to be...
