Next week, well over 110 million Americans will read some or all of the Sunday newspaper. Maybe they will enjoy the comics, or work the crossword. Maybe they’ll pore over a local investigative report and be hooked enough to go to the website and look at a video related to the story. Maybe they’ll shout their displeasure at the paper’s editorial on health care or a local zoning matter and even be outraged enough to write a letter to the editor. Maybe they’ll study a baseball box score, put a local restaurant review up on their fridge or notice a shoe sale at the local department store. Many cost-conscious newspaper readers will clip coupons from the Sunday paper.
