目前，有手机应用，新闻网站提供相同的服务，在一个微不足道或没有成本的相同的市场。除了成本因素，还有很大的便利因素。大多数转向数字媒体的报纸读者更喜欢移动应用，而不是桌面网站。这为我们提供了便利因素的证据(Mirza, 2015)。并不是说印刷媒体不能有效地提供信息。相反，数字媒体比印刷媒体有更多的优势，而印刷媒体目前的商业模式永远无法克服这些劣势。但是，过去的情况也是一样的。尽管那时没有互联网和手机。即使在过去的1960年至1990年期间，这些公司也经历了巨大的亏损。有些时候，由于巨大的损失，出版过程被维持了下来。在那个时候，收音机曾经是人们喜爱的媒介。这个角色主要不是由互联网和移动设备扮演的(Nossek et al, 2015)。
即使在过去，人们也越来越不愿意使用印刷媒体，因为他们不得不购买报纸或杂志，他们可以在广播上免费听到。因此，出版过程和印刷媒体从来没有被证明是一个非常有效的过程，为出版商。与电视和手机广告收入相比，平面媒体广告收入较少。同样的比例也发生在过去的无线电和它的开始。因此，与其他来源相比，这些印刷媒体的收入总是较少。报纸上的广告自古以来就被人们所忽视。然而，无论是在广播时代还是在互联网时代，人们都能正确地观察或听到同样的事情(Griggs et al, 2014)。有一个非常大的崛起观众在最近时期,更换回的移动和互联网等渠道主要包括数字表示,最重要的一个原因的死亡印刷文化是数字网络文化本身(托尔伯特,2014)。关于印刷媒体内容的过时和退化，已经有许多讨论。
In the present, there are phone applications, news websites offering the same services at an insignificant or no cost to the same market. Apart from the cost factor, there is the big convenience factor. Most of the newspaper readers who have shifted to digital media prefer mobile apps over desktop sites. This gives us an evidence of the convenience factor (Mirza, 2015). It is not that print media does not serve the information in an effective manner. Instead, it is that digital media has a lot more advantages over print media, whose current business model will never allow itself to overcome the disadvantages. But, the condition in the past was also the same. Though during those times, there were no internet and mobile phones. Even in the past during the times of 1960-1990, these companies have been observing a huge loss. There were times when the publication process was upheld because of the huge loss. At that time, it was the radio which used to be the popular medium for the people. This role is not played majorly by the internet and mobile (Nossek et al, 2015).
Even in the past, people used to be more and more reluctant to the use of the print media as for the same they had to buy the newspaper or the magazine which they can hear for free on radio. Thus, publication process and print media has never proved to be a very effective process for the publishers. The amount of money which is earned in advertising on print media is lesser in comparison to the one earned on television and mobile. The same ratio went on in the past with the radio and its onset. Thus, the revenue of these print media was always less in comparison to other sources. Advertisement in the newspapers is generally overlooked by the people right from the ancient times. However the same is observed or heard by the people properly, both during the times of radio and internet (Griggs et al, 2014). There has been a rise of a very large audience in the recent times, who have switched back to the sources such as the mobile and internet which mostly include the digital representation, one of the most important reasons for the death of the print culture is the digital online culture itself (Talbot, 2014). There has been much of a discussion related to the obsolescence and the deterioration for the content in the print media.
