All newspapers need to do is ban cell phones

Those who are particularly likely to read news in a printed version of
their local paper on a typical day include: whites, those over age 50,
and people who do not own cell phones

Excuse me. Did you say the people most likely to be reading a printed newspaper on a typical day don’t own a cell phone? Yikes!

Seriously, there’s aton being written (here and here and here) about the new study from the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism on Understanding the Participatory News Consumer, but that one sentence is a tell about printed newspapers.
