Why we don’t need printed newspapers

In my opinion, printed newspapers are no longer needed. By the time the paper is printed everyone has heard about all the stories that are in it. When a story breaks it is online within seconds and it is shared thousands of times in minutes. I have also noticed that when newspapers are thrown onto peoples driveways most people throw them away or don’t even pick them up. Also there are always a stack of them in the stores that never really gets smaller. I think that newspapers should not be printed anymore because it would be a huge help to the environment. So many papers are printed and it wastes so much paper. If they weren’t printed anymore I feel that it would save a lot of trees from being cut down. What is the point of printing millions of newspapers when just about all of them have a website where they post the same stories and most people just watch the news to see what is going on in the world. Everything is online now and why not take this step to help the environment.
