Dead tree tariffs threatening print publications. Even more.

Ah yes, the digital talk about the future, is for show, as the newspaper industry trembles at the idea of steep tariffs hitting them hard.

This article does reveal how top heavy the industry still is:

An industry coalition that includes the American Society of News Editors, Association of Alternative Newsmedia, Association of American Publishers, Association for Print Technologies, Book Manufacturer’s Institute, Catalyst Paper, Inland Press Association, Kruger, Local Search Association, National Newspaper Association, News Media Alliance, Printing Industries of America, Quad Graphics, Rayonier Advance Materials, Resolute Forest Products, Southern Newspaper Publishers Association, Trusted Media Brands, Valassis Communications, and Worzalla will ask the International Trade Commission and Congress to block the tariffs.

 

That’s a lot of paper crowns to have to supply, and it seems the cost of those crowns are about the skyrocket as circulation numbers go the other way…
