Then, in my 20’s, after I graduated college, I’d buy the daily newspaper. These days, I can’t remember the last time I bought any newspaper.
Newspapers are dropping like flies. They brought it on themselves because of incompetence. The three newspapers I used to work for are now out of business. I wasn’t surprised. All my bosses except one were incompetent (this includes MBAs from Harvard).
Today the only news I read is Bing news – and I’m paid about 20 cents a day to do it. Then after about a month I get a five dollar Amazon gift card, which I store at Amazon until I have enough to buy something.
Instead of having to buy a newspaper I’m being paid to read the news!
Otherwise I get everything off of the Internet. To me Facebook is entertainment, blogs are entertainment and opinion (and as I written before some of the writers are close to morons). Then there is Twitter and Reddit.
Online magazines I read are the Alternative Right and Radix Journal and Taki’s magazine.
I still buy paper magazines and even have a subscription to Popular Science.
Newspapers are supported by advertising. Much of the advertising has moved to the Internet. No surprise there for me.
I don’t know why blogs are free. I only make about $120 a year off my blog. I could buy a website but they cost about what? Two dollars or three dollars a month? But I’d had to move my entire blog over there and it’s not worth it.
Advanced technology is amazing. People had no idea what Gutenberg would lead to, and I don’t know of anyone who predicted what would happen with the Internet.
Now TV news – which is liberal – needs to be destroyed. The only way to do is for them to lose their advertising.
Fat change of that happening right now. Maybe someday, though, with the advent of cheap ad-free entertainment such as Hulu and Netflix.
I can barely wait.
The day that Lester Holt and Scott Pelley and George Stephanopoulos and Chris Wallace are gone will be a day of celebration.
There is no journalism in this country anymore beyond the Internet. The MSM is a political special interest group, nothing else.
