1981 report on internet journalism

Imagine if you will, sitting down to your morning coffee, turning on your home computer to read the day's newspaper! Big news in 1981. Love the rotary dials, green screens, courier type and super: "Richard Halloran, Owns Home Computer." Prescient SF Examiner editor: "We're not in it to make money." Announcer reports it takes over two hours to receive entire text of the newspaper. Sounds familiar. Anybody else a Verizon DSL user?
