Newspaper readership results from the Newspaper Audience Databank in the US for 2007 show that readership is shifting to the Internet in the form of videos and blogs.

The Star columnist Rosie DiManno believes if newspapers go completely online, articles will lose substance, original thought, and story-telling. According to DiManno, people go to the Internet "not for illumination but for validation of their own beliefs and to group-bitch."
