It’s about saving journalism

My most recent column for NewsandTech has resulted in some buzz. In it, I argue that the debate over whether we can save newspapers is horribly misguided. Newspapers will be around for a long time; they may be around in a much different form.

I believe the debate we should have is over saving journalism, and the importance strong, independent journalism has to a free society. We can’t afford to have a litany of the uninformed masquerading as defenders of the truth. We have thousands of well-trained journalists who want to inform public of what’s going on in their community — and then let the community decide whether that information is good or bad. Please take a look at the entire column and let me know what you think
