If Newspapers Move to Online-Only Mode, What Should We Call Them?



When the majority of newspapers all shift to online-only mode, the term “newspaper” will be outdated.

We may still have journalists publishing news online under logos of recognized news brands, but they won’t be newspapers since they won’t actually be printing their news on paper.

We will need a new definition of news organization.

We suggest calling them “newssites” (based on the soon-to-be outdated newsstand).

Calling them “dailies” is so last century, given the 24/7 online news cycle.
