Newspapers still deliver – for YOU

More by this author

What do Gov. Mitch Daniels, Senators Evan Bayh and Richard Lugar, Colts owner Jim Irsay, screenwriter Angelo Pizzo (“Hoosiers” and “Rudy”); Indiana University President Michael McRobbie; Purdue President France Cordova; Butler President Bobby Fong; TV personality Dick Wolfsie; “Garfield” creator Jim Davis; and a number of other well-known Hoosiers have in common?

They believe that newspapers still deliver, the theme of an eight-week campaign just winding up on behalf of Indiana newspapers to remind folks of that important fact and have appeared in ads stating their beliefs about newspapers.

Why the campaign? Because it’s no secret that newspapers have taken some hits lately that have seen some big-city papers close or file bankruptcy, cut back delivery and trim staffs. While certainly the terrible economic times have caused some of this, the advent of the Internet is also to blame.

But while these difficulties are real, the Indianapolis Recorder Newspaper along with 175 other daily and weekly newspapers in Indiana would like to reassure you we are here to stay – providing the news, information, advertising and entertainment you’ve come to depend on.

Haven’t thought about life without newspapers? Well, hopefully you never will.

That’s because most newspapers in Indiana, while suffering through the same economic tough times that nearly all businesses are experiencing, are still hard at it.

We are covering city council and town board meetings, attending school board meetings, reporting from the police and sheriff’s stations, covering high school sports, printing honor rolls, tromping around the county fair grounds counting blue ribbons, publishing obituaries, birth and engagement announcements and 50th anniversary wedding stories. And lots, lots more.

Think what our community would be like without a newspaper – we could all just blog ourselves to death – but about what? Newspapers, it’s been said, write the first draft of history – bloggers, Googlers, Bingers and all the other news “aggregators” feed off that.

So, despite all the changes in how we can receive news and information these days – we still need newspapers. And, newspapers still deliver.

Thanks for reading the Recorder.

Thanks for patronizing advertisers choosing the Recorder to run your ads.

Thanks for caring that an important part of our democracy – that part guaranteed by The First Amendment – remains a part of the future.

Yes, newspapers still deliver – for YOU.
