Report: ‘Guardian’ to End Print Edition

The Daily Telegraph reports that the publisher of The Guardian and The Observer is “seriously discussing” ending the newspapers' print editions and moving entirely online. Guardian editor-in-chief Alan Rusbridger apparently wants to continue developing the digital-only U.S. edition before getting rid of the print edition. But trustees of the Scott Trust, which owns the newspapers, are reportedly worried that there is not enough cash on hand to keep printing the newspapers. The Guardian disputes the report, posting, “At some point the economics may work out in favor of going digital only. At present, that just isn’t the case.”
