WHY we need newspapers … or not


Telling the “why” of every story is the rationale behind the continued existence of the Las Vegas Sun. (That the Sun still breathes — an extremely independent voice within the pages of its former competitor, the Las Vegas Review Journal — is another story.)


The Las Vegas Sun commercial gives a much better reason to pick up a newspaper than does the ceaseless dribble New Yorkers endure through the NY Times’ “Weekender” TV spots (like the yuppified one that follows), spots that make those of us who still read the Times feel like idiots for doing so.


Thanks to the 92YTribeca for this satire of their “Weekender” spots. I’m so pleased to know I’m not the only one who absolutely HATES those Times intrusions. Watch this:


This loving couple just LOVES the Sunday New York Times…

And here, the Times reminds us that you can read the Old Lady in your pajamas (what a joy!) … and they give us a teenager who started reading the Times when she was 7 years old (now THAT’s news!)
