You are so right to extoll the necessity of local newspapers. As small papers go out of business and conglomerates dominate the news markets, local news disappears. With it goes reporting on the local school board, business initiatives, the city council, and community events. The process of developing and maintaining a sense of community is lost. Excellent post.


I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have the newspapers delivered every day! I enjoy sitting down and digesting all the details of what's going on in the world and my own community.

local news is so important, but I fear that news, generally, has become so trivialized

The words: "a community's shared discourse" resonated for me. The facebook set do that as well with a mix of personal and worldwide news. Whether we like it or not, social media represents a huge segment of society. We who grew up with printed newspapers are perhaps the most fortunate in that we can compare both styles of communication. Great to share that in your Xtra, Xtra post for all to appreciate.

An outstanding post. No blog or twitter can compare to the breadth and depth of a newspaper. Long may they live!
