The Newspaper Project, launched by a small group of newspaper execs earlier this year, has come up with an ad campaign to…remind people why they like newspapers?

Here’s our suggestion for a slogan:

Newspapers: Because You Can’t Afford A Kindle
Or maybe,

Newspapers. Doing Sudoku Online Is A Pain In The Ass
