3/13/2014 JAMES SERGENT, 884667682 3 Who Killed the Newspaper? At first glance it seems like an open and shut case… a no-brainer. Technology killed the newspaper and everybody knows it. The www.worldwideweb, Internet, Android/Smartphones, 4G Networks, & Mobile Apps were the murder weapons. Government deregulation was the plot they hatched… the driving force behind the beginning of the end for the newspaper. Without deregulation Wall Street fat acts like AT&T & Times/ Warner, Inc., would never have owned multiple technologies like Radio/TV, Cable/Satellite, isp’s and Wireless. “Who Killed the Newspaper”, really lies somewhere between technology, greed and Wall Street. http://www.ehow.com/info_8416077_pros-tv-deregulation.html http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=103x232690
