How would the closing of our local paper affect our community?
March 25, 2009
Our daily newspaper--the Lansing State Journal--is struggling financially and everybody knows it. The paper is so thin that it resembles an anemic shopper without the ads.
The online news media has been abuzz about the closing of daily newspapers around the country and most recently, the planned closing of the Ann Arbor News.
How would the closing of the Lansing State Journal affect our local community?
In my "The Lansing Blog" I share a Princeton study of how the closing of the Cincinnati Post affected northern Kentucky and its day-to-day life, especially citizen participation in local government.
Is this what mid-Michigan has to look forward to?
