The Sad Decline of Newspapers


FROM THE 2021 Articles,
andMysteryrat's Maze

by Thomas Kies

“If you try and make this job about the money, you’ll be nothing but miserable, ‘cause we don’t get the money—never have, never will.” —That’s a quote from the 1994 Ron Howard film The Paper.
That was when newspapers were still vibrant purveyors of journalism. Part of the wit and wisdom of the movie is Robert Duvall’s smart-ass observations. At one point in the movie, he explains how a reporter can move through the rarified air of the elite, famous, powerful, and rich, but isn’t one of them.
