    Oct 13 2013: I tell you what, newspapers need better content. I was recently reading the Sun Sentinel and Miami Herald. I can tell you, without a doubt, the content was absolutely mind numbing. I have no idea where they get some of these writers, but the material could not have been more boring.

    Newspapers could still have a place in the big picture. I just don't think they try hard enough to include quality content. Maybe this isn't the case for other newspapers. I can definitely speak for the ones here in South Florida.
