"I am sorry to say that most newspapers do not deserve to be
saved, yes even the one in my hometown. They have become no more
than mouthpieces for their owners and editorial staffs most of the
time. They are more concerned with molding public opinion than
informing them. Giving the public real information is counteractive
to the purpose. What little real investigating and real news that
is done, is either never seen, kept unpublished until the subject
matter is no longer relevant or rewritten to say what the brass
want it to say. Any real search for, or telling of the "truth" of
things has long since been brushed aside.
"People crave information, if newspapers had been doing the job
of informing their audience like they claim they are then that
audience would not be looking for information in other places like
they have been for some time now. The problem is not the newspaper,
its the ownership and editorial staff being more beholden to what
they want over the papers function of informing the public and
letting them decide for themselves."
