A Question For Newspapers and Their Readers

Why are stock quotes still printed in newspapers? Are newspapers paid to print them, or do they print them only because they have always printed them? Is it just filler information?

It seems to me that if you are relying on a newspaper to tell you what happened in the markets the day before, you probably aren’t making as much money as you could/should. It’s just raw data. There isn’t any analysis or there, just numbers

I’m sure there is a really good reason that I’m overlooking. I just don’t get it.

It’s for the old-timers that can’t deal w/ the internet and who read it in the morning with their coffee, grapefruit, and bowl of super colon blow.

I waited a few hours, but nobody followed up the “super colon blow” reference with a mention of “Oops I crapped my pants”.

C’mon people, wake up! Old people->colon blow->diaper that can hold a gallon of iced tea. It’s not that hard.
