You can choose metaphors to illustrate how technologically outdated newspapers have become in a media landscape dominated by blogs and the internet. They are vinyl records in an iPod world; videotapes in the era of DVDs and Hulu; typewriters in the face of the laptop. They are an old technology no one wants, needs or, increasingly, seems to care for. Certainly not in Philadelphia, where both the Inquirer and the Daily News are in bankruptcy

It’s like a slow motion daily torture.
And if you subscribe to the Telegraph “alerts” you will the first to know about the next discovery.
Yesterday my local press agent in S[t]. Davids was calling to the Telegraph distribution center asking for extra copies.
Today I went around 11 am to buy the paper and I got the last copy.
So, the saga continues.
And the paper is a daily sold out.
The Telegraph is telling us a superb lesson in order to cope with any newspaper crisis:
Exclusive news and stories always sell.
And The Daily Telegraph has plenty of them.
Readers love them.
Not the crooks.
So again and again:
Publish the news and raise hell!

Quite right too!
The referee was inexperienced and way out of his depth for a Champions League semi final. It makes the game look like a joke! As a United fan, I feel sympathy with the Blues, although I'd much rather be playing Barca in the final on their current form
