An impractical suggestion for newspapers made in a letter to the Mansfield News Journal:
“Why can’t newspapers have this practice [online publishing] discontinued, and then they can go back to the old-fashioned way of publishing their paper and regain their subscribers and advertisers?”
Followed by a more legitimate concern about the relationship between online newspapers and democracy:
“If newspapers are forced to stop publishing, there won’t be any information to be placed on the internet.”
While there would still be information from a range of sources if newspapers were taken out of the picture, how would the quality of this information be perceived by the reader, such as the writer of this letter?
