Buy a newspaper!

Don’t get me wrong, I sincerely appreciate all the readers and reasonable politicians who encourage me to keep on keeping folks honest, but the truth is, I wouldn’t be doing it if it wasn’t for newspapers. If it wasn’t for the patience and wisdom of editors, if it wasn’t for the due diligence and hard work of the reporters, if it wasn’t for the audience they worked so hard to create…
God bless online efforts like Patch, but only newspapers employ the kind of reporters that really do the digging.
Blogs? Some are reasonable, but most simply aggregate the news they get from newspapers or they’re exactly like Rich Miller’s Capitol Fax which is about as slanted and worthless as it gets. Most of those mopes can’t even string two sentences together.
So you really wanna do your part to keep those nefarious politicians and public figures at bay? Then buy a newspaper (especially the Beacon and Courier-News). I know the digital times have changed, but even as they they figure out how to forge ahead in the age of the Net, a newspaper subscription is still one of the best deals on the planet.
Buy a newspaper, you’ll have ’em shaking in their shoes!
