Wow, Jim, that is depressing. But when publishers go from having a professional, adequate,m decently paid staff covering their communities to getting free crap from anybody, this is what we can all look forward to. I don't know what the answer is to the broken newspaper business model -- I don't think anyone does -- but this definitely ain't it.

How long do you think until there is organized disinformation or propaganda efforts by multiple posters and commenters?

I'm thinking there is already some of that.

In addition to this spot for news about my old stomping grounds, I am please to say I found this:

Kathy Shafran, one of the few real news reporters from the world of broadcast is breaking her own news via her blog.

Thought you'd like to know.
