Bob Garfield, host of the ‘On the Media’ podcast in their episode entitled Communication Breakdown made this statement to Phil McCausland of NBC News… Just when the public needs the straight dope the most, local newspapers are dropping like flies. McCausland replied with… Right now is when we depend on local journalism to dig into their own communities, to highlight these issues, to hold their local leaders accountable, to hold their governors and state legislators accountable. What is really scary is we are going to see a media blackout in regions of the country where some of these hotspots might pick up and we’re not going to able to note that pick up as quickly as we could if we had journalists on the ground asking questions who know their regions really well, knowing the leaders really well, and asking difficult questions.
