We’re still here

After the year we just had and are continuing to have, I remembered a post I read about ‘When Will Newspapers Become Extinct?’

That prediction came in 2014 from The Future Exploration Network’s research on the future of media. The research concluded that newspapers will be extinct across the entire globe by 2040. By 2025, they predict newspapers will be extinct in nearly 20 countries around the world – this included the United States by 2017 and by 2020, Canada.

When I first read this a few years ago I chuckled knowing newspapers are nowhere near extinction, however conceded to the fact they are declining.
