Saving Daily Newspapers
by

In a meandering column earlier this year, I bashed liberal media bias while still arguing that daily newspapers must be saved from collapse. The need for a common culture demands it. Today, the wonderful Debra Saunders, always a breath of fresh air and a thoughtful conservative (more of the libertarian variety) makes much the same point. I hate to ruin he rcolumn by giving away her last line — DO read the whole column — but her last paragraph demands to be quoted because it is true: “When a newspaper dies, you don’t get a comprehensive periodical to fill the void. You get an informational vacant lot into which passersby can throw their junk.”

That is not a good thing for conservatives.
