National Newspaper Week -- Oct. 6-12 -- is a good time to offer a fresh perspective on the newspaper industry. To paraphrase what Mark Twain said about the premature printing of his obituary, let me say that the reports of the death of newspapers in our state and nation are greatly exaggerated. While the printed edition continues to be the core product, many newspaper media companies today also offer news in a variety of digital options: websites, text alerts, mobile sites, social media sites, apps and more.
