Because ‘concern’ is what I feel when I hear about feral gangs of rabid teens raping people. I spit on print media’s grave.
Local news is not a scalable model, but rather it is a public good. It is vital, therefore, that solutions are found to save local newspapers. The consequences for local communities if their local newspapers disappear are profound: less local news will be reported, few courts will be covered, and local government will not be […]
