The StartupNation Blog Trends, tips and real-life anecdotes from industry experts

Are newspapers still a resource for entrepreneurs?

I haven’t read a hard copy newspaper in about 10 years. Even before I was able to get all the news I need from the internet, I just got turned off to what I felt was biased writing, so I stopped my subscription and eventually when the internet began to fulfill all of my news reading needs, I stopped reading the paper altogether.

It seems I’m not alone. The LA Times is suffering and so their parent company Tribune Co. is scrambling.

I realize that I’m asking an online and possible biased audience, but what about you? You, the StartupNation community, are the leading edge movers & shakers who are focusing on starting and growing your dream business. Are newspapers like the LA Times still a resource for you as an entrepreneur, or have online resources and websites like craigslist turned you away from buying newspapers?
