Is it still a newspaper?

This Colorado "paper" strives to be the primary newssource for a community of 360,000 people. The twist? There's no print edition. It's entirely online.

I would say yes.

Yes, in my opinion, certainly such tree hugger (online edition only) versions of newspapers are.

It's only a newspaper if it's printed. A newspaper can be clipped and saved in a scrapbook. A newspaper can't be changed once it's published. A story on website can be tweeked or changed at will. MSNBC changed their web story about Cheney shooting a guy in the face after it was published. I change stories on BurlingtonPol all the time. If you're just looking at it on the web, it isn't a newspaper. If you fire-up your printer and print it, then it becomes a newspaper.
