“No, news needs to be a business that builds value for the communities it serves and sustains itself as a result of that value.”… Though your critic of the book seems valid, this sentence in your conclusion is really short sighted. An average daily in an average city creates value for the community and is paid for it. But you don’t adress the problem of what kind of return big pockets investors want to get from their funding a newspaper. If the local newspaper of my example is owned by the clownesque Trump or the neo-facist Cruz, this will have a great — and sad — impact on the community, don’t you think ?
