Chris Davis writes about the perceptions of the deaths of newspapers.

When writing about the death of daily newspapers, daily newspapers usually like to blame things like the Internet, increasing aliteracy, and a loss of advertising resulting from the latest economic downturn.

The complaints aren’t entirely without merit but are generally stated in a way suggesting that America’s media giants are merely the victims of terrible external forces, not their own horrible business decisions. Accusing the Internet of pulpicide, though, is a little like giving barbarian invaders full credit for the fall of the Roman Empire.

The article is excellent and you can find it at the Memphis Flyer.
