Younger people are less likely to read newspapers nowadays. This might be the reason.
At my mother's house on Christmas eve, the big headline in the Milwaukee Journal (one of the nation's best city newspapers) was "Is time up for the watch?" A story about how young people do not wear or need watches. They consult their cell phones instead. I was intrigued by the story. It was news to me.
So I asked our son Willie, home from college, how many of his friends wear a watch. "None," he replied, "Except for rich kids who want to show off."
"Is this about that stupid article in the paper?" he then asked.
"Well, since the article is right," I replied, "why is it 'stupid'?"
"Because it's not NEWS!" he shot back.
I hate it when the kids are always right.......
Do you wear a watch? What's your take on whether newspapers can serve Gen Y?
