|What are your thoughts of the free papers distributed in cities?
Newspapers may someday become a thing of the past. But not before the generation who has relied on them since before the tech age of instant news is gone. Those who counted on them in the past will always be a viable market for publishers to reach.
They reach a lot of people who otherwise probably wouldn't get round to reading a news paper at all. I wouldn't mind writing for them.
I prefer to read a book on the tube, though.
More power to them, though if they are anything like the Metro in Philadelphia, their quality is suspect at best.
Very biased, very angry, very inaccurate.
Something has to stop Google having the monopoly on advertising.
As they're advertiser-funded, they tend to skew towards the advertorial style of content, but I think they're a necessary addition to the media-scape, often providing parochial viewpoints where national papers do not.
it is a good ideea, but in my opinion this papers is not very interesting
They have their place. They are usually funded by advertising and are localised. They can be great for local journalists.
If you're referring to the "alternatives," I love them and prefer to write for them.
it is something positive.
I think it's great.
Well, I've written for a few of them. They are advertising driven, but then so are MSM papers. It's all about revenue. You got it, you have room to publish it. I just think the MSM has lost touch with their readership and will go down as a lost cause. At least in my area, most folks are moderately conservative. Some even more, yet the News media continues to support left wing ideas. This, I'm afraid will kill journalism before economics does. It's all about representing those that you serve.
a very good ideea. but their not good enough like the payed ones
They're a mishmash...some are excellent, some are useless. Most are culturally based and therefore provide a definitive service to a community.
I don't really buy newspaper nowadays and free newspaper is actually nothing much different with the selling one.
