    FINALLY: The Death Of The Newspaper Thanks To The Internet & Now Virus




    Newspapers have been an essential part of life since 1609




    I am not going to give you its title as this Strasburg published newspaper was made up of six unsayable Teutonic words. Others, mostly Germany, quickly followed the goosesteps of strident journalism. Surprisingly, the Jewish community was slow to respond, unless they owned or otherwise controlled the aforementioned. The first Yiddish language newspaper was published in 1686. The comparatively slow to react British were to catch the media virus in 1690. For how much longer is anyone’s guess; maybe it will be months after weeks on a life-support machine. The breaking news is there is unlikely to be traditional newspapers for very much longer. Print newspapers may be one of the highest-profile victims of the Coronavirus, so the contagion does have its uses. All newspapers, including online corporate-owned media, are totally dependent upon advertising revenue. As I write, the phones in newspaper advertising offices are nonstop ringing as virus affected businesses cancel their advertising. Advertising is not going to lure people out of their homes when they are being warned of fines and worse in the event of their venturing to a non-essential business or cancelled social activity.





    Many smug newspaper editors won’t be licking their chops for very much longer. There will be survivors in online news. However, this will mostly be alternative media, now used to being denied access to advertising; karma anyone? Ironically, the only way to find a world-class journalist is to grab a visa for Russia. There one will find American whistle-blower Edward Snowden who is in self-imposed exile.




    Otherwise, any resolute sleuth in search of a real journalist might challenge the authorities by visiting Britain’s most notorious high-security prison. There, somewhere in the prison’s sinister labyrinths, one will find Australian award-winning journalist, Julian Assange. Print and online newspapers are 90% financed by advertising revenue.
