Since 2004, more than two thousand American newspapers have gone out of business. On the next Fresh Air, Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan talks with Terry about the decline of local news coverage, a crisis she says is as serious as the spread of disinformation on the Internet. Her new book is Ghosting the News: Local Journalism and the Crisis of American Democracy. Join us.
Fresh Air can be heard weekdays at 4:00 pm on KRCB-FM (and again at 12:00 am Tuesday through Friday)! / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the FREE KRCB Mobile App which you can download for your favorite mobile device.
