Re: “New Orleans faces future without daily newspaper” (TNT, 6-24).
It’s sad, troubling news indeed that a major American city will now be without its own daily newspaper. And it happens to be one of the most prestigious, award-winning newspapers in the land – the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
And for those like Sarah Palin who think bloggers and the Internet will fill the information void, guess what? Thirty-six per cent of the people of New Orleans lack access to the Internet.
Imagine Tacoma/Pierce County without a local daily newspaper. Where would you go to stay well-informed?
