For over a decade, banks have started charging a fee for paper statements, encouraging consumers to opt into electronic statements or to “go paperless.” In truth, banks may prefer paperless statements because it saves them printing and mailing costs. Unfortunately, electronic statements don’t always benefit everyone. NerdWallet writes that: “Banks, by law, have to make paper statements available as an option. They can’t assume everyone has internet access.” Electronic statements may negatively affect many groups of people who cannot easily access the internet. In 2018, internet adoption gaps remain based on factors such as age, location and education. For example: •Among those who were not high school graduates, 65% used the internet compared to 84% for high school graduates and 97% for college graduates. •For those 65 years and older, 66% used the internet compared to 87% for ages 50-64 and 97% for the younger age groups. •Only 58% of those living in rural areas are home broadband users.

Megyn Kelly, the anchor of Fox News’s top-rated cable news program The Kelly File, will take her show on the road for the first time, beginning November 28, in support of her debut memoir, Settle for More. Kelly’s memoir was published by HarperCollins on November 15 with an announced first printing of 2 million copies.
Kelly will air The Kelly File live from Chicago, Ill., Kansas City, Mo., Fort Hood, Tex., Naples, Fla., and Washington, D.C., where she will also be available to sign books.
The memoir, according to HarperCollins, “presents an inside look at her rise to the top of the news business, going behind the scenes of the stories that have made her one of the most talked about public figures in America.” Kelly’s profile skyrocketed as she became one of Donald Trump’s main adversaries following a Republican debate which she served as a co-moderator. She also became a figure in the ouster of former Fox News head Roger Ailes.
