Who would have guessed that a former newspaper reporter would say that we need newspapers? If he thinks that there is no one left to expose abuses by the police, he needs to take a look at http://www.theagitator.com which is a website devoted almost entirely to that issue.

Death of Newspapers…

There will always be news and there will always be “newspapers” to satiate my appetite. Why I should be concerned with the form of delivery is beyond my ability to appreciate.

Let expand on my previous comment. BHO talked down the economy since his election and until ten days ago when Bill Clinton told him to be positive. Upon recommendations from Ralph Emanuel, BHO did it for two reasons: TO BE SURE that the collapse was charged to GWB, and to urge the undertaking of his new policies.

Since “the guardians” stopped “guarding” long ago, even before the Judith Miller-Iraq disaster at the NY Times, who cares if they die? They have failed their purpose, so they deserve to be history.
