Is the Web Killing the Newspaper Industry?

From the article: “According to circulation figures, newspaper subscriptions are declining. Logically, the Web gets much of the blame. However, a closer look indicates that this is part of a twenty-year trend – quite a bit longer than the average person has had easy Internet access. Some industry analysts believe the real culprit (or at least the one that started it all) is twenty-four hour cable news. Others say changes in the rules governing telemarketing (the means by which major papers gained up to 65 percent of their home delivery subscribers in the past) have had the greatest impact of all.”

Lindsey and I get nearly all our news via RSS feeds and an occasional website. How has the internet changed your news and do you think it’s killing newspapers, or changing them?
