TAPinto.net CEO and Publisher Michael Shapiro appeared on “One on One” with Steve Adubato Thursday night and answered questions about the role of hyperlocal online news media.

The interview was broadcast on WNYY, NJTV and WNET. Adubato closed by saying that “Michael Shapiro, he is on the cutting edge of media.“

Shapiro answered a wide-range of questions about TAPinto.net and its 5.5 million readers and revealed some interesting statistical trends about online, local news.

“I think there is the greatest demand for local news coverage,” Shapiro said. “We see that in our statistics. Sixty-seven percent of our readers come from mobile devices, so print newspaper can’t service those people.

“The other interesting thing is that more and more older Americans are reading their news online. In terms of our demographics of our own site a great majority of our readers are 45 and older. In fact, 20 percent of our readers are 65 and older. This notion that older people don’t read online isn’t true.”

Hate Trumps Love

September 19, 2017

This letter is in response to Karen Egert's letter, "President Trump has abandoned the country," dated September 11, 2017. 

I find it interesting that Karen only saw the violence from the 'alt-right,' over the course of one day, but did not see, or refuses to acknowledge all the violence from the alt-left' over the past several years - from the occupy ...

U.S. Air Traffic Control Isn’t Working; Here's How to Fix it

September 13, 2017

For over 30 years the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has tried – and failed –to modernize America’s woefully dysfunctional air traffic control system (ATC). It is time to get ATC out from under the thumbs of federal bureaucrats and partisan politicians, and create a completely new structure that will get U.S. air traffic moving.

American ATC is stuck in the 1950s.

Give Me Some Credit

I used to think I was special.  

 

But it turns out I am not.  I am just one measly name in 143 million.  

 

You see, that’s the number of lucky Americans who had their personal data purloined in a massive data breach at Equifax, the credit reporting agency.  At least I am not alone.

 

I checked the special Equifax website the other day ...
