"Dailies shrug off Libertarian confab"
Rocky Mountain News column - Dave Kopel
Kopel points out the alternative and new media that did a good job of covering the third largest political party in the United States' Denver convention and chastizes the two major dailies for their lack of coverage.
Ever wonder why daily newspapers are dying? They can't (or don't) provide the coverage the internet can. Daily newspapers certainly can't provide the up to the minute coverage of the internet.
Once upon a time, the Rocky Mountains had hearty Mountain Men trapping and hunting for a living. Time moved on, and the mountain men died off. They were replaced by farmers, ranchers and textile mills.
Daily newspapers are on their way to being replaced by electronic media.
