#4 Investing in Newspapers? (Student Response)
What a way to start this chapter! It is very interesting to know that Newspapers are still making money out there. I can honestly have said that with technology, hardly anyone grabs a newspaper and reads it. I guess I was mistaken since our book starts with a little bit of statistics on how people still invest in newspapers and make money. I had no idea that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos had bought the Washington Post, or that another billionaire name John Henry purchased the Boston globe. Regardless of how little we all think people think of them, they still make money.
