Why don’t newspaper websites put advertising info online?

Most blogs have an “Advertise Here” link that lets visitors check out rates and upload their ads. What if you want to advertise on a newspaper’s website? “Look for how to do it. Not easy,” says Douglas McLennan. “I have to call someone, negotiate a deal. Can I advertise on the newspaper’s blog that I know all my customers are reading? No. No one’s advertising there, so how much will it cost? Not worth it to me.”
