6. This is so sad.
I know that Journalism has been dying a slow death in this country for years, but to have local newspapers fold and possibly be replace by regional issues of a large newspaper reminds me of McNews. With no local journalists, there will be no oversight of greedy corporations or corrupt politicians. Both Detroit newspapers cut their own throats a few years back during the strike. They instantly lost about 25% of their readership and NEVER regained it. Apparently their non-union printers didn't save them enough money so they had to eliminate most of the print issues anyway.
