Good news for newspapers

You’ve probably read about the demand for Election Day newspapers. A reader in this Los Angeles Times article put it this way:

This is a physical record of history being made. As soon as you close the computer screen, that image is gone. And you can’t frame the Internet.

Here are some links related to this rare bit of upbeat news for print media:

  • Joe Strupp of Editor & Publisher tells us how, for at least a day or two, print was king again.
  • The Charlotte Observer offers this video, which includes one woman who bought 60 copies of the paper.
  • The News & Record in Greensboro has advice on how to save newspapers for the long haul — the actual objects, not the industry.

UPDATE: The Onion also cashes in.
