This paper finds that the rise of the Internet found newspapers unprepared for the changes that occurred. It finds further that those papers which cannot adapt to the changing environment have failed, and that this trend will continue in the future. The paper explains that the newspapers that emphasize paper are doomed to oblivion, while those that emphasize news will be able to survive through adaptation. The paper relates that among the most common adaptations in the acquisition and development of web-based offshoots for such things as classified advertising. The paper also notes that the presence of entities such as craigslist present serious models of ways that the Internet may gradually overtake entire functions.

From the Paper:

"Time was when a newspaper was pretty much its own medium. Readers wishing to comment could write letters to the editor, or perhaps cancel a subscription if they felt too offended, but the notion of instant feedback to the newspaper was beyond conception. No more. Even the print media that have not gone to online editions have e-mail addresses for virtually every writer, department, columnist, reporter, whatever, has a posted e-mail address. Many periodicals and newspapers are available on-line., or have on-line supplements. In short, the Internet has had a profound and pervasive influence on more conventional media."
