The author discusses newspaper publishing company Newhouse's decision to end daily home delivery of the "Plain Dealer" newspaper in Cleveland, Ohio in favor of a three-day home delivery model. He contends that the company's dramatic cutting of expenses while maintaining advertising revenue is to restore payouts to family member owners. Newhouse's move is also described as an exit from the newspaper business and an entry into the advertising shopper business.
