From the back cover:
What is the current state of journalism in America? Better yet, what is the current state of small-town print journalism? Maybe this doesn’t seem like a relevant question, but it might be the most important question there is when it comes to the future of the business. The reason is the backbone of American journalism takes place in small cities and towns across America, not what most people see in big newsrooms with flashy graphics. The heart and soul of American journalism is done by gum-show reporters who attend local meetings and events as well as uncover shenanigans of local government.
Many think the end is near for journalism in small towns. But in this book, find out why the author believe there can be a resurgence of local journalism – as long as the beancounters stay out of the picture. There is hope, he reasons, but it is going to take a revolution of sorts, so that small newsrooms get back into the hands of local ownership. Corporate America has made a mockery of local journalism and now is the time to strike back.
