I will admit to being a fan of newsprint. Something about leisurely reading of the daily rag is something that I enjoy. At home, we subscribe to the local newspaper, and read it every day. While I read the NY Times everyday online, I still subscribe to the local fish wrapper.
As a product manager, I also travel. A lot. Hotels all over the USA, and the world. Invariably, they come with a local paper. In the US, if you are lucky, you will get a complimentary copy of the Wall Street Journal (although I enjoy reading that a lot less now that it is a Murdoch paper, but that is a tale for a different day). However, you are about 99% likely to get a copy of the USA Today.
Seriously, I suspect that if the gratis copies provided to hotel guests were eliminated, the circulation is probably about 50 copies daily. Why do I dis the USA Today? It seems to be a purposely bland paper. It tries too hard to be neutral in its editorial stance. Its selection of stories is guaranteed to be non-offensive. Even its opinion page strives to have a completely neutral balance. Add that to the WHITE newsprint that gives it a more of a magazine look and feel, and you get a waste of words.
I usually glance through it, but as with a meringue, it is fluffy, but ultimately unfulfilling.
