Voice of the White House

Washington, D.C.: The print media in American has basicially collapsed. The once mighty and very influential New York Times and Washington Post are teetering on the verge of bankruptcy. The reading public has gone over to free news on the Internet and paid circulations have plummeted. A newspaper's life-blood is not in subscriptions but in advertising revenue and no advertiser wishes to spend large amounts of corporate cash on running advertisements in a paper with almost no subscribers. Ergo, we see frantic efforts to keep what is left of the paper afloat by going onto the Internet and trying, desperately, to get readers to pay for information that is, in the main, trivial, late, and badly written.
