Online local news papers

An online newspaper, also known as a web newspaper, is a newspaper that exists on the World Wide Web or Internet, either separately or as an online version of a printed periodical. And the Online local newspapers are one which contains especially local news along with other important news but mostly local news is preferred

Professional journalists have some advantages over blogs, as editors are normally aware of the potential for legal problems.

Several wide-ranging strategies in the newspaper industry have been making headlines lately (Newhouse’s draconian cuts in New Orleans, Warren Buffett’s aggressive newspaper purchases, outsourcing hyperlocal news to Journatic), and The New York Times’ David Carr tied a lot of them together in a sharp column identifying the severe financial difficulties facing the newspaper industry. The piece of news he reported was the fact that pension funds at major newspaper chains like Gannett and McClatchy are underfunded by hundreds of millions of dollars. Gannett Blog’s Jim Hopkins said that finding deserves some attention.


One of the most prominent responses to these financial threats has been the implementation of online pay walls, a strategy that Ebyline’s Peter Beller reported are more common at larger papers, to the point where it now affects a third of America’s daily newspaper readers. Closely tied to that strategy is a doubling-down by publishers on “original reporting” online, which media analyst Frederic Filloux contended is a losing proposition, because aggregators’ tech- and marketing-savviness are trumping the quality of traditional publishers’ work in the battle for online readers. British journalist Adam Tinworth said part of the problem is that publishers are trying out and pitching new digital strategies far too often, instead of being patient enough to see one though.

Some newspapers have attempted to integrate the intacaernet into every aspect of their operations, i.e., reporters writing stories for both print and online, and classified advertisements appearing in both media; others operate websites that are more distinct from the printed newspaper. The Newspaper National Network LP is an online advertising sales partnership of the Newspaper Association of America and 25 major newspaper companies.
