The forthcoming Newspaper Apocalypse (a poll)



I last paid for a physical newspaper

Today
7(6.9%)
In the last week
10(9.8%)
In the last month
11(10.8%)
In the last six months
11(10.8%)
In the last year
5(4.9%)
Longer than a year ago/Never
58(56.9%)

I get most of my news from

A free newspaper
1(1.0%)
A non-free newspaper
1(1.0%)
Newspaper website(s) I habitually visit
18(17.6%)
Non-newspaper website(s) I habitually visit
34(33.3%)
Whatever people link to on Twitter/Facebook/LJ/etc.
22(21.6%)
Chatting to friends (IRC, IM, face to face conversation)
2(2.0%)
TV
3(2.9%)
Radio
15(14.7%)
SEWIWEIC
6(5.9%)

I pay for access to

News websites
10(10.2%)
Non-news websites
12(12.2%)
Neither
76(77.6%)

Print newspapers

Dead within five years
3(3.3%)
Dead within ten years
29(31.5%)
Will continue to exist for the forseeable future
60(65.2%)

The main future funding model for journalism is...

Pure subscription
8(10.3%)
Pure advertising
17(21.8%)
Offering a few pages for free, and charging for more than that
13(16.7%)
Offering extra services to premium members
34(43.6%)
SEWIWEIC
6(7.7%)

If every existing print newspaper shut down tomorrow then that would be

GOOD
12(13.2%)
BAD
79(86.8%)


This poll inspired heavily by (and the image stolen from) Jennie Rigg, whose poll equivalent is here you should all be reading over here.
