Almost 2/3 of the UK read newspapers in the olden days. But not anymore.
The Independent, one of the youngest newspapers in the UK, is closing down its print edition.
During its heyday, the paper surpassed 200,000 copies but now, it's selling just about 57,000.
Death at the doorstep for the industry?
One newspaper in Malaysia is now selling just 50,000 copies daily.
It's the NST.
Is the NST following the Independent to the grave?
Or it continues to defy death.
