Who Killed The Newspaper?

Speaking of creative destruction, The Economist magazine ran a cover story recently about the impending death of newspapers. As the magazine noted in its lead article:

Newspapers have not yet started to shut down in large numbers, but it is only a matter of time. Over the next few decades, half the rich world's general papers may fold.

Video killed the radio, or so the song said. The Internet/Web killed the newspaper.

Maybe there is another hit song to write...
