Consider a City Without a Paper. The Newark Star-Ledger may be in the gutter soon, leaving the city without any newspaper.
Print media has been in trouble for a while. Bloggers be humble, though. Gawker declares:
What we haven’t seen in all this, though, is a major American city with no newspaper. Everyone believes that a paper is an essential part of a city’s fabric, like city hall and the jail and the local sports team. If Newark—a town with more problems than most—is left without a paper, who will tell the world what’s going on there? Who will tell Newark what its own government is up to? Even bloggers should be humble enough to pray that the Star-Ledger isn’t the first in a long line of papers that disappear and leave people with no forum for the local bickering, minutiae, and moments of glory that are the real American civics lesson.
