NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- My favorite "dinosaur" stock has done it again. USA Today publisher Gannett (GCI), which appeared to be on its' deathbed just a few years ago, put up another better-than expected quarter.I call Gannett a "dinosaur" stock because the presumption has been that newspaper names are going the way of the dinosaur. Between intense competition from the Internet as a news source, and declining advertising revenue, newspapers appear to be a modern day version of the buggy whip, a device that was no longer needed once the automobile went mainstream.
