THE DEMISE OF LOCAL MEDIA: WHAT IF WE SOON HAVE NO NEWSPAPERS LEFT?

 

By Miriam Raftery

February 17, 2014 (San Diego’s East County)--As a journalist, I find it disturbing to see the high number of East County media outlets that have closed their doors, slashed content, or sold out to a corporate conglomerate in recent months.  Those remaining are struggling amid a culture of readers that increasing are failing to support the important job of news gathering that is so critical for our democracy—not to mention keeping you informed of breaking news, emergencies and events in your community.

STAHL BLASTS SAN DIEGO MEDIA

 
May 11, 2012 (San Diego) -- The Stahl for Congress Committee has called into question not only the journalistic intent, but also the community obligation of the local San Diego media.
 
The Stahl for Congress Committee is wondering why we are even having a primary if the local media wants to decide for the voters who should be in the debates and the general election without interviewing or vetting anyone but Saldana, Peters and Bilbray.  (Editor’s note:  East County Magazine HAS interviewed Stahl.
