Ed Maroney, in his "The Exchange" column in this week's Barnstable Patriot, gave us a mention:
"After reading last month’s column, with its description of the postal permit that allowed editors to exchange free copies of their papers, former CBS News executive Art Kane of Barnstable told us that, in the early 19th century, the average newspaper received 4,300 exchange copies a year. His source is Paul Starr’s Creation of the Media.
Our correspondent also recommends a piece by national media critic Bill Powers of Orleans: Hamlet’s Blackberry: Why Paper is Eternal. You can find it at http://www.scribd.com/doc/3562724/Hamlets-Blackberry-Why-Paper-Is-Eternal."
