Maybe the newspaper is like the old LP -- you know, as in "Long Play." It may be a 33 1/3, though it seems like it came out of the age of 78s sometimes, a relic of the post-Victorian Victrola age. It is what it is, a wonderful compendium of one day in the life (of a nation, a city, a village), a one-size-fits-all product, the same singular product delivered to mass volumes of readers.
In the short history of Internet disintermediation and disruption of the traditional news business, we’ve heard endless debate of the "the content and the container," as people have tried to peel back the difference between the physical form of the newspaper — its container — and what it had in it.
