Penny Press To Digital: Does History Repeat Itself?

In this term project, I would like to study the Penny Press in the United States, and compare their impact on the practice of journalism to the current wave of online newspapers and blogs, especially those that have been launched in the Seattle area. How were the Penny papers organized and monetized and what caused their ultimate demise?  Are there any parallels to the decline of metropolitan daily newspapers in America today?  This study will also discuss the current state of the newspaper business in the US, the impact of technology and changing public tastes on the consumption of news, and the rise of citizen journalism.
