So I learn something new everyday.
I didn't realize how rare it was for local newspapers to have a single owner that is not a corporation and does not own ALL THE OTHER NEWSPAPERS IN THE AREA.
I don't have a lot of information on this yet but I think this will be my next project.
I want to learn all about who owns what and how this affects independent journalism.
I've always had this pipe dream about owning my own newspaper, but that may actually be beneficial to this cause one day if I can start a successful newspaper that is owned by just me and not by a large corporation or wealthy individual who owns multiple news sources.
Stay tuned for more freak-outs about why journalism is not being endangered by technology but by corporate ownership.
