While the Daily News has been struggling financially for decades, it has managed to hold its ground as one of the nation’s top-selling newspapers. The paper’s circulation is now more than 200,000. Although it has been in financial trouble for decades, the paper has remained strong in its coverage of New York City and its five boroughs. However, a new digital technology has changed the face of American journalism.
During the early 1970s, the Daily News began to undergo some changes. The paper’s circulation began to drop, and in the late 1970s, the newspaper’s staff was cut in half. Several employees started campaigns to save the paper. Some were forced to leave, while others were offered buyouts.
In the book Death of the Daily News, author Andrew Conte explores what happens when a local newspaper dies, and how it affects a community. His approach is thoughtful and insightful. He uses empathy and compelling prose to bring the reader to the heart of the issue.
The book examines the impact of losing a local newspaper, and demonstrates how some people are trying to build a new kind of local journalism. It shows how some citizens are finding news in bleak places. Ultimately, the book provides guidance for how to move forward.
As a local journalist, Andrew Conte understands the role of a newspaper. He also has deep experience in national and local news. He knows firsthand how important it is for citizens to know about their communities. This means knowing the difference between fact and gossip. By examining how people in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, are coping with the loss of their local paper, Conte offers advice for how to create a sustainable and vibrant community.
Throughout the book, Conte argues that there are still many reasons to care about local journalism. He suggests that in a digital age, the importance of local news is more than ever. For instance, he points out that citizens are becoming gatekeepers for their information. They are now discovering local news in places that were once out of reach.
Conte also argues that local journalism is a vital tool for communities that are threatened by a lack of access to information. Through the book, he provides examples of how local journalism can continue to thrive in an increasingly technological and digital world. Among the examples, he cites the McKeesport experiment. Using social media and other resources, McKeesport residents have attempted to make sense of the news on their own.
Overall, this book is a rich read. It’s easy to understand, and well-written, and it will appeal to scholars and ordinary citizens.
