If tabloids disappear, will we still have stories and headlines like this?

"Drowned Out!" The New York Post blares this morning.

The news:

The day after a teen drowned in the treacherous riptides off Rockaway Beach, this lifeguard appeared totally oblivious to the dangers there -- wearing iPod headphones on the job yesterday in clear violation of city Parks Department rules.

The story has officials promising an investigation.
