What Happened To Local Journalism?

Recommended Posts

I realize there’s less press releases put out in the weekend, but the first 10 minutes of tonight’s “local” news on WETM was a replay of last nights NBC Nightly News.

Good grief.

Hate to be a skeptic...but.....but....I'm a little skeptical

You got some kind of itch, that always seems to come back.

I’m sure not going to try to instigate you into bringing it back...because it's undoubtedly %1000 better for your mental health and stress levels to be done with it.

You’re not wrong 😉But I also know I can only lead a horse to water so many times. It’s someone else’s turn, and if they want to buy a domain with pre-made social media audience, I’m open to offers.

Stuff like this sure won't encourage people to pursue journalism: 

 

Quote

 

Less than a day after asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in the stabbing death of Las Vegas Review-Journal investigative reporter Jeff German, police served a search warrant Wednesday at the home of Clark County Public Administrator Robert Telles.

The search marked a stunning development in the police investigation because it indicated for the first time that the killing might be related to German’s work exposing public wrongdoing. German’s investigation of Telles this year contributed to the Democrat’s primary election loss, and German was working on a potential follow-up story about Telles the week he was killed.

I see ithaca.com isn't really running stories out of Spencer, Van-Etten and Candor anymore. It makes me wonder if The Random Harvest paper they had for  over there is done as well.

11 minutes of hurricane coverage, one story out of Corning, and then weather tonight.

Hey WETM, you guys do know the NBC Nightly News is on after you, and they’ll do the national news, right?
