Why are newspapers declining so rapidly?

I recently saw this article about declining circulation in newspapers. Some of these numbers are truly shocking.

Why so across the board bad? On one hand it’s easy to blame the rise of alternative news and opinion sources on the internet. One could blame the physical medium of newspapers themselves. I certainly feel sorry for anyone trying to sell yesterday’s news in form that is considered so environmentally unfriendly that cities have to have an entirely separate taxpayer funded infrastructure just to remove the products after they are used.

On an unrelated note, the other day I read a blog post where someone was accused of “lacking even the integrity of a journalist”.

Do you think that might have something to do with it?
