Today, Rebecca Greenfield wrote about young, traditional media-shunning cord-cutters. In the comments section, we heard from a 60-year-old who cut her cable subscription—but is keeping her newspaper subscription. bdlaacmm writes

I cut the cord two years ago, and have never looked back. (And I'm 60 years old, so I'm not sure whether I fit into the "young" demographic.)

I can visualize no scenario in which I would be tempted to re-subscribe. There's an actual real world out there that all the TV watchers are missing — plus, I get all the news and info I need off the internet (much of it on this site).

And I still get a newspaper (The Washington Post) delivered to my home each morning.
