Eric Black Ink Who needs newspapers? Share this:EmailFacebookTwitterPrint By Eric Black | 03/04/2009 In observation of the passing of the Rocky Mountain News, and with a hat tip to my friend Mike Finley, I pass along cartoonist Richard Thompson’s take on who needs newspapers.

Bizarre take for someone who depends on newspapers for a living, at least I assume this cartoonist does. Personally, I’d have answered “anybody who wants investigative reporting”.

As the cartoon shows, it was an almost perfect analog product — it worked on so many levels. I grieve for all my brothers and sisters who are being shaken out of the drawer.
