Newspapers: Gone With The Twentysomethings?

“Young newspaper readers are no different than older people who enjoy newspapers (aside from being better-looking). We are looking for an in-depth analysis of issues that blogs, TV and radio are incapable of providing. We are also the minority of the two youth groups. Young people who are not inclined to read newspapers - the majority - have unfortunately already chosen sides. Their teammates include lightweight print media that no medium predicated upon the word news could or should compete against.”

Question (to you twentysomethings that inhabit this blog): Is there anyway that newspapers can woo you into reading them?
