This a fascinating and insightful look at what happens when a town loses its newspaper. While the story of what happened to McKeesport is not unique, it is a symptom of what is happening across America as newspapers continue to fade away in towns and cities large and small.
A must read for anyone who cares about the future of journalism in this country. This book is a timely, richly layered anatomy of what happens when local news dies and how citizens try to fill the void in their communities. Andrew Conte examines the failure of both top-down and bottom-up approaches to journalism and concludes that if we want journalism to survive in this country, it must be led by communities themselves.
In Death of the Daily News, Conte brilliantly takes us from life to death and back to life again, leaving us with hope that local news can rise from its ashes. He writes with a perceptive and empathetic approach, even as he sounds the alarm about communities that are losing their news sources.
