Why Newspapers Are Dying

Is it any wonder newspapers are dying.

My friend Chris Sligh, who just auditioned last night on American Idol, is creating quite a buzz on the Internet [read about my trip with him to his initial audition.] Paula has hinted that he could win the whole thing. He's mentioned in today's issue of USAToday. His audition clip was shown and discussed this morning on "The Today Show" (Meredith said she loves him, last year's 2nd place winner Katharine McPhee turned her nose up at him!) Mike Gallagher talked about him on his radio show. His audition clip is #5 at AOL. He was the star of the Fox News at 10 o'clock last night, with 3 stories about him scattered across the hour. He's the biggest thing to happen to Greenville, SC in quite some time.

And not one word in the local Greenville News.

Or maybe it's just the Greenville News, since he's on the front page of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, and on the front page of their website.
