radical redesign that, on paper, looks more like a web page

Ft. Worth Star-Telegram debuted a redesign this week, from PoynterOnline.org

The redesign is, “Controversial because some readers are very passionate about how much they hate it.”

true, this radical redesign that, on paper, looks more like a web page would probably shock some long time subscribers … but, i really like the new design … it is easy to see how people, so used to a traditional broadsheet newspaper, can be so unsettled by this new design … remember, you can’t ‘click’ on paper

my mom worked in newspaper advertising for many years … she grew up in fort worth and also worked in boston … i can’t wait to see what she thinks of the new design.
