Washington, DC—Washington Post columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin took a look at the state of the newspapers in the nation’s capital and concluded that there are some areas that the newspaper industry is just too big to ignore.
“In the coming years, the industry will be judged on the quality of its content and not the size of its business,” Sorkins said in his article, which was published on Monday.
“The paper industry is going to be judged more on the success of the local papers than on the size,” he added.
“Even if a newspaper is a great success, if you are not seeing that success from your local paper, then you are doing a disservice to the community,” Salkins concluded.
Sorkins’s article came after several years of a boom in newspaper subscriptions that has seen more and more communities around the country become reliant on local papers.
In 2016, the Washington Post was among the nation´s most popular newspapers.
The Washington Post has a circulation of over 5.5 million and has been the newspaper of record for nearly three decades.
Since its establishment in 1911, it has had a strong following, with over 5,000,000 members in total.
The company also publishes an eclectic selection of newspapers including the Washington Times, The Hill, and The Hill Magazine.
The Associated Press also has a strong local news presence and has had strong support from local residents and communities in recent years.
In 2017, it published its own edition of The Washington Post, which will be published as a separate online publication.
