    • Hey Johnathan, this article is awesome! I am the editor of the school newspaper at Judge Memorial. I totally agree with the fact that news has gone much more digital and that it is less common for readers to pick up than a physical newspaper. I think it is so interesting and adds a valuable personal element to the story that you interviewed and have quotes from people who have been directly impacted by this change. In regards to how the media is affecting newspapers, I think you should take a look at this article https://www.theguardian.com/media-network/media-network-blog/2014/jan/30/digital-world-changing-concept-news .

I look forward to reading more of your articles! I hope you write more in regards to the media and how it interacts with the modern world!
