A perfect take on the demise of the local print newspaper, the last source of good writing, the real authentic news and non-fanatical, well reasoned opinion. Don’t let them die. Subscribe, subscribe, subscribe.
Similarly, my drawers and kitchen shelves are lined with twenty year old newspapers.
Our local weekly has turned to Gofundme for support, after all the advertising went away during the pandemic.
and here i just cancelled my last lingering newspaper subscription. go ahead, try to make me feel guilty! but it had ceased to carry local news, instead just printing feeds from the services. no, i take that back, it still had a multi-page sports section, and with the advent of football season it did start obsessing on local teams. but when it cut Dear Abby and most of the comics, well… that was the final blow. sayonara local so-called newspaper.
