No Newspapers By 2017 >
Can you imagine not having a newspaper to read while you’re drinking your morning coffee? That day may be closer than you think. According to a newspaper extinction timeline by Ross Dawson, the U.S. will no longer have newspapers after 2017.
Newspapers have been willowing away ever since the news has gone live on TV and online. The recent rise of technology for tablets, e-readers and mobile devices has also sounded the death cry of the paper. Collaborative news sites like Newsweek’s Daily Beast provide a one-stop shop for all the day’s top stories, taking the footwork and the wait time out of traditional newsgathering. Not to mention the fact that plenty of historically credible TV news giants have focused their energy towards the web.
