Dearly Departing

So the Tribune papers are going down the tubes, and the Post, Times and Wall Street Journal are all hemorrhaging money, and we are supposed to lament these facts. But maybe if they had actually reported on the GOP crime spree that has been hollowing out the economy for about 40 years, or on Bush's well-known criminally incompetent unfitness for office, Karl Rove's treasons (or for that matter, Nixon's, Reagan's and Poppy Bush's) maybe people would still find newspapers interesting and relevant, a necessary part of the the nation's vital discourse. As is, who cares if they disappear entirely? They only provided the illusion of news anyway, an illusion we're probably better off without.
