  1. Isn’t that pretty much what they do now?

    When I bring in the Sentinel in the morning, I (when I have time to peruse it) notice all the articles are recaps of the previous days’ top stories I usually already know about from the web that previous day. But newspapers seem to have a better feel for encapsulating the stories than blogs and other online news services do – less rambling, more focused. Of course, limited space forces one to be a better writer so that’s not surprising. I also always find a couple of surprises that I didn’t see the day before, nor likely would have even if I’d been looking.

    I don’t think newspapers need to change at all, really. By the time we get them, the news itself is old so we already know the vital stats – it’s the rest of the info that’s difficult to deliver online that keeps newspapers valuable.
