Daily Newspapers' Death Accelerates

Status: [OPEN] comments (0) | add a comment | confidence poll
Death of daily newspapers will accelerate and many papers will fail outright. When the Detroit Free Press announces it is ending home delivery on most days as they are expected to, well that's it. I thought this process would take longer but it is likely that half the daily newspapers in America will be gone in three years.
