a glimmer of hoope

The recent demise of several newspapers and the ongoing slide of TV journalism into tabloid press talking heads has left a huge void in the ability of the press to monitor our government in an objective and in depth manner.

Not that I don't love MSNBC and how they provide a much needed counterweight to Fox News. But, it is concerning that the number of 'voices' out there is shrinking and some real journalistic talent has been sidelined due to the fact that people don't read newspapers.

Let's hope the following plan comes to fruition and fulfills the need for some in depth objective reporting, because it is all about democracy and a free and watchdog-like press is a much needed ingredient.
