question: can we call "print newspapers" as "snailpapers" because they arrive with news that is 12 hrs old?
The Newspaper Death Watch blog webbed by Paul Gillin has a post today about "snailpapers" -- as a term of endearment, although some criticism is implied by the term, too, obviously -- here: (scroll down to item)
ITEM: [He] has come up with a new word for newspapers. He calls
them “snailpapers.” [But] the longtime newspaperman insists this is a
term of endearment, not derision. He thinks maybe if newspapers poked
more fun at themselves instead of getting all righteously indignant
about new media, they would generate more sympathy.

newspapers and the rebirth of journalism
