Maybe the print newspaper is more valuable than we think
Fascinating. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer dropped its print edition to go online only on March 17. Its online viewership has DROPPED 23 percent, according to Editor & Publisher, dropping it from its place in the nation's top 30 newspaper sites. In fact, it dropped below its competitor, the Seattle Times, which notched a 70 percent increase in online viewership as well as continuing its print publication. Don't know for sure, but this may be a significant trend.
