Michigan Public Radio report: Newspapers struggling with a Trump tariff on newsprint

by Lester Graham

New tariffs are putting some Michigan newspapers and printers at risk of going out of business.

There’s more than a little irony in the fact that a state which built paper mills all over, no longer makes the kind of paper that newspapers use.

“The last Michigan producer was Manistique Paper and they closed in 2011. There’s actually only five American mills that are producing the type of paper that newspapers use,” said Julie Stafford with Stafford Printing and Publishing.
