  • National papers that seemed to get most of their news "off the wires" have suffered greatly since the internet. Papers like the T-G predominantly cover local news which is not covered very well on the net.

    I am still more comfortable holding my reading material. The computer screen gets tiresome and is eye straining.

    A number of my subscriptions (even printer oriented, industry magazines) offer online subscriptions and I say "mail it". Not only because I want to support the print/paper industry but because I like it better.

    Guess I am living up to beng old fashioned.

  • "guess I'll miss E&P occasionally, just as I sometimes wish the Nashville Banner, which left us in 1998, was still around. I always thought the Banner was a better product than The Tennessean.

    We in the industry occasionally hear gloom and doom predictions about newspapers. Let's just say there are quite a few of us around who embrace new technologies wholeheartedly while still seeing a real need for news printed with ink on paper as well."

    I can say at least the Banner would bother to check the facts rather that run what ever dribble a badge or bagger would purport to be the truth. I use to subscribe to the Banner but would not even let my pigeons roost on the Tennessean out on the farm

  • I was just a few days ago telling a new comer to Middle Tennessee about "The Nashville Banner". I miss it as well.
