1981 News Segment About Online Newspapers

This is a news segment from 1981 about "electronic newspapers". It's all kinds of awesome, from the dial-up internet connection to the quip about how the local newspaper guy shouldn't worry about losing his job.

Best line, "We're not in it to make money, we're not going to make much either, but we're not going to lose a lot."

Yeah, not lose a lot -- except your livlihood and your entire business model!
