Bennie Crabtree: Something I love about newspapers, is that their content can't be easily redacted by corporate sponsored editors from the Ministry of Truth, and no government is interested in changing their content now. Yes, knowledge needs to be updated, but digital content has no protection at all against revisionism, whereas print media give excellent snapshots of bias and public imagination/memory. Digital media is fundamentally undemocratic - it is too susceptible to manipulation to be trusted. It turns every bit of text into one of Stalin's family photographs, ready for revisions from anywhere, at any time.
