On Newspapers and Journalism

There’s been much to read on this topic, but I found this article in The Nation especially informative for its historical perspective – all the way back to the founding fathers – and including the pre-internet decisions/legislation which actually began this downward spiral. Also included are suggestions for change, which is what I have found lacking in most other editorials and articles on the topic. Check it out:

The Death and Life of Great American Newspapers
By John Nichols & Robert W. McChesney
The Nation (April 6, 2009 ed.)
March 18, 2009
