blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: $1.00

1.09.2009

$1.00

That's the new daily price of the Dallas Morning News. I may be the only one who cares since no one else I know reads the newspaper, but enjoy it while you can. I don't know when it will happen, but there will soon come a day when there is no paper edition of the DMN.

America is about to really change! The print media is dying as fast as it can. The big TV channels are in fast pursuit.

And that leaves us with the Web, quite possibly the most distorted info distributor ever created. Think how this blog gets distorted!
Multiply by X.

And worse, my Blackburry just doesn't enhance my coffee each morning.

The only benefit I can think of is fewer trips to the recycling bin.

Give it up old timer!

On December 21 2012 there will be no paper edition of anything anymore.

Though this blog reaches a ton of folks who are not attorneys, the author (is that the right descriptive word for a Blogger?) being an attorney compels me to say: I would much prefer to go to a shelf and pull off a copy of a given statute or code BOOK, look through the index and find what i am looking for than spending a ton of time doing a word search on Lexis or Westlaw. The idea that paper newspapers will no longer cease to exist is sad, and not just because it signals the marching of time. "Old Timer", my as$!

This economy is brutal.

You, Hubby mzchief and my best boyfriend are the only people I know who, everyday/morning, read the newspaper. Age wise, all three of you are within 5 years of each other, self-employed, professionals, watch sports and are physically active as well as physically fit.

I'm glad Barry realised the December 21 bit is hilarious BECAUSE it's played out.

The fact that you still read the newspaper regularly explains your liberal slant. I used to read it daily until a few years ago I began noticing a decline in quality and an ever-growing liberal bias which I don't think represents the country fairly, at least not the country I have known for 50-plus years. No, if the newspapers die and go away it's because they produce a substandard product.

We still receive the DMN and the ST
the day wouldn't be complete without both papers

You would have to be: Rich,black,poor,liberal or some combination thereof to give a rats rear end what the DMN says anyway so I'm less than concerned where/when it goes.

You obviously don't read the DMN if you think it has a liberal slant. They endorse Republican in every national and state race, including this year when they endorsed McCain.

Anyway, my husband and I still read the DMN every morning - we subscribe and we are 53 & 55 years old, professionals, and one of us is fit. :>) My parents, who are retired professionals, also subscribe to and read the DMN everyday.

Alas, my children who are late twenties, do not subscribe to it and if they read it, it's online.

I, too, lament this.

And respected newspapers are much more reliable fact checkers than any blog and most web sites.

I felt the same way when scrolls and illuminated texts went away...

Read Farenheit 451 again. If it's been some time since you've read it, you will be amazed at Bradbury's prescience.

The scene where the wife simply reads her husbands lips because she won't take out her "sea shells" (ear buds) is eerily played out in school hallways every day.

oh my, epic, that's spooky....and very interesting.

Yessir, 2:53 PM, that's the idea.

Don't read newspapers unless they agree with you.

Yeah. That's the path to greatness.

Not soon enough.

Newsprint makes me sneeze. 2:26PM reminds me of Stan Bridwell for some reason. I don't know why. RIP, Stan. We misss ya'.

My liberal slant isn't determined by my newspapers. I even read Cal Thomas, not for enlightenment, but as a cardiac jump start to my day!

Mark Davis spurs me to get out of the recliner and write that check to the DNC!

Both of my papers are relatively fair and balanced.......the real fair and balanced of yesteryear.

Yeah, 2:26's post reminds me of the current Index: it includes a double negative (unintentional?) that just confuses whatever point that was being made.

For those of you debating what is fact or distortion, I recommend the website FactCheck.org. They are non-partisan and debunk printed, stated and internet blather from all sides.

Hey, 9:28 AM. FactCheck.org has their own little biases. Don't always believe them. Or for that matter, Snopes.com.

8:04 - You sound like someone who just won't accept facts that don't agree with your biases.

Factcheck.org and snopes.com are both well-respected as having one goal - get to the facts. They favor no political party.

I'm sure you are lamenting the end of Dubya's days in politics. He never liked to let facts interfere with his biases either.
"Mission Accomplished" - yeah, right.

I, on the other hand, am giddy with celebratory happiness to see Bush leaving and Obama and crew arriving.
