PBS Report on Proliferation of Free Daily Newspapers

I have been regularly reading both, and recommend this PBS report on the national trend to lure readers back to daily newspapers with versions comprised mostly of bite-sized articles, often delivered with a strong political slant, and lots of advertising to defray production costs.
