Off-topic rant: Remember paragraphs?

Take a look at the article referenced in the previous post.

There are eleven sentences in the article and ten paragraphs.

I see a lot of articles written like this.

What is it with the current fad in newspaper writing of having only one sentence per paragraph?

Although there are two sentences in one paragraph. But they’re short ones.

It’s very annoying to anyone with a reading comprehension level beyond third grade level.

Is this something they teach at J-School now?

I was taught (in third grade or thereabouts) that several related sentences that form a thought should be combined into a single paragraph.

Is that no longer true?
