What is News?

In Life in Society on October 28, 2011 at 12:28 pm

… it’s none of my concern whether newspapers make money or not, nor should it matter to anyone who reads them. Making money is their problem. As a reader, I’m only concerned with getting solid news and reporting, and I think I know what that is when I read it.

This is another thing that is backward today: news comes at us relentlessly, one cannot avoid it, yet we’re rarely engaged or involved in stories, beyond lurid interest or ennui, because they’re rarely told (or ignored) with the general public or—gasp—the greater good in mind.

…good readers will seek out good content. As a lifelong newspaper reader, I’ll attest to this.
