Brad Cook: Democracy can't afford to be without newspapers

A songwriter once said, “Teach your children well.” I am not sure what else we need to teach them, but I know we need to teach them to read the daily newspaper, both from their locality, and from their nation, or they will only have the fragmented news purveyors to tell them what is going on, and they will have eliminated the news organizations that have the resources to employ the coming likes of James Reston, Patrick Buchanan, David Brooks, and, yes, Kevin Landrigan, Garry Rayno and John DiStaso.
