The future of news

As this news report shows, being able to read an entire newspaper—aside from 'the pictures, ads or comics'—on a computer was a giant technological leap back in 1981. While this development has certainly been good for the readers, it hasn't been too beneficial for newspapers. And you can see where it started to go wrong. As David Cole from the San Francisco Examiner says in the clip: "This is an experiment ... We're not in it to make money." Some might say the same strategy holds true 34 years later.
