* Time – News is picked up on the net so much quicker now, stories hardly break in newspapers, people read the news on there phone now
* Evolution – Print has to combine their efforts off and online so the online mechanisms still push to print where people can gain some form of exclusivity http://www.ivoryresearch.com had to implement a social media strategy to engage people more, basically you have to work hard to reach all of the masses
* Quality of Writing – engaging, thought provoking can many editors say that the articles that they approve are any of these?
* Free press – in the UK we have free newspapers handed out at train stations which means a huge circ and brands wanting to get there advertising in there does this make the quality of the paper better knowing that more people will be reading or more brands will pay more money. Either way the quality is there regardless!!

Reliable and thorough newsreporting will never go out of fashion.
