Newsprint: Now for the latest…

Newsprint TaxJim Ewert, CNPA’s general counsel, told us last Friday about his trip to Washington, D.C., on behalf of CNPA to gather support for the effort to oppose the tariffs on imported Canadian newsprint. His report is here.

  • Continue to editorialize and cover the newsprint-tariff topic in your pages.
  • Contact your local and state representatives. Paul Boyle at the News Media Alliance emphasized the effectiveness of publishers reaching out personally to their congressional members.
  • Ask your readers to express their concern to elected officials by reminding them how important the printed newspaper is.
  • Sign the News Media Alliance’s petition and run the new house ads urging your readers to sign the petition.
