The NWF Daily News is accelerating its slide into oblivion. I am referring to the recent management decision to discontinue the Saturday print issue.
It was already bad enough that the annual subscription cost was on an upward spiral.
that there were less and less real news stories.
articles that would hardly make the inside pages of the second section had become front page “news.”
a sports section with very little reporting on action outside the local area.
There have been two recent (last two weeks) major news stories that I never did see in the NWF Daily News. One about the assistant state attorney arrested and another about a murder in Crestview. Why were these not important?
I read the paper while eating breakfast in the morning. It is going to be difficult to hold a computer doing the same.
My friends are already complaining about the subscription costs. A number have ceased being subscribers because of this. Now we are going to have a 14.3% reduction in our delivered papers. I will give anybody a 5:1 bet that we see NO reduction in the subscription cost.
