In Florida, They Loved Their Newspapers Yesterday

Newspapers scored decently in Florida yesterday when Twitter users responded to Kevin Cate’s appeal on his daily newsletter “to share on social media why you love and subscribe to your favorite newspapers using #LoveMyNewspaper and tagging your favorite newspapers.”

“The print and digital editions of newspapers allow us to be briefed like kings and queens for next to nothing,” Cate noted on their behalf, “Seriously, you’d have to be a billionaire to afford that on your own.

“Newspapers are worth defending.”

So, indeed, a gaggle of hashtaggers responded. “I #LoveMyNewspaper because of great traditions like readers’ Holiday Dessert Recipes,” Ron Brackett affirmed, while Dan Sweeney declared that “I #LoveMyNewspaper because I have a strong preference for gainful employment…” He’s the state politics reporter for the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

It’s unfortunate that the decline of newspapers had to get to a point like this, but whatever works in a good cause is worth noting.
