Printed newspapers amount to nothing if they don’t reach their readers

In the newspaper business, it all comes down to one little kid on a bicyle (these days, actually, it’s more likely to be his grandpa or grandma). Unfortunately, newspaper execs are so exhausted after putting their ailing OM products to bed, that trafficking copies once they leave the building too often appears to be beyond their abilities. Too bad and so sad. Yet another nail in the coffin.
