All The News That Fits

Thursday, March 15, 2007

Boston's Metro (the newspaper. The subway system in Boston is called the T.) ads make me nervous. Metro is not a good paper because it has to make all of its news bite-sized regardless of how complicated it is. Readers will only hold on to the paper for as long as it takes them to get off the T (which, in Boston, could be quite some time) and so all the news gets essentially boiled down to briefs. Is that news? I'm going to be really sad if Metro is the only type of news that fits my life. Is that life? I'm not one for waking up early in the morning, but I still relish the idea of a newspaper and a cup of copy before work (or even sneaking a peek at the newspaper once you get to work). Is putting out that paper newspapering? Can't you find time to sit down with a real newspaper? Please?
