Liberty (08941408);Jun2009, Vol. 23 Issue 5, p29
The article looks at the possible extinction of U.S. newspapers. Liberal bias, decline of reading, and the coming of online news prints are considered the main reasons for the decline of U.S. newspapers. However, according to the author, newspapers are important because Internet, radio, and television news come from them. In addition, without newspapers, information will flow without any journalist's intervention and powerful institutions will be left to cover themselves.
