Lessening the News That's Fit to Print

The Dallas Morning News proudly announces above the fold on page 1 this morning that it is now providing its readers with less content. Of course, that's not the way that they explain it. The paper is adopting a somewhat larger font size, narrowing the width of the page, and adding category labels above the story headlines.

Of course, the Dallas Morning News is not unique in this regard. Newspapers all over the country have been convincing readers that they are doing their customers a favor by making their products more "readable" while giving them less to read.
