Online revenue down

If newspapers were hoping online revenue would make up for print declines, PaidContent has some bad news:

No point in sugarcoating it: even the online ad revenues for the newspapers are in a bad shape: For the Q308 numbers released by Newspaper Association of America (via Robert MacMillan): total online ad revenues came in at about $749 million, down 3 percent from the previous quarter figures of $776.5 million in the previous quarter. This is the second straight quarter of online ad revenue decline for U.S. newspapers. Print, not surprisingly, is down a more brutal 20 percent.

I'll make this quick! The KC Star Sunday edition today SUCKS!!!

After getting rid of the people who write the stories/articles, today they are left with nothing!!! They just drop sections of the paper. Now there's not even enough paper for my cat to use this week.

DEAR SANTA, ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS A NEW PAPER FOR KANSAS CITY. One that gives a shit about it's readers.
