Default Tiny newspapers are thriving

Some, the bigger ones, yes, but generally the small, local ones with a niche/franchise (like local sports and good school and local government coverage) are growing in circulation, readership and advertising.

The big papers can't cover everything, so offer only the occasional story about local, small-town businesses and events. There's no coverage of school events. It's the small, community papers who fill that role and are well supported because of it.
