Stockholm

The world’s oldest continually published newspaper has stopped putting out its print edition. Sweden’s Post-och Inrikes Tidningar, founded by the queen of Sweden in 1645, is now a Web-only publication. Traditionalists voiced their chagrin. “It’s a cultural disaster,” said Hans Holm, who was chief editor for 20 years. “It is sad when you have worked with it for so long and it has been around for so long.” Circulation of the print edition was down to about 1,000 when the presses finally stopped. The Web version is expected to attract more readers.
