John Oliver on Journalism

10 Aug

John Oliver discussed the topic of Journalism in the US on his show “Last Week Tonight” last Sunday (August 7th, 2016).

I agree with him and saw this trend in journalism taking place over the past few years as readers want more for free and jump online to get it.  I found my “news” sites were becoming more and more irrelevant and were loaded with random content from around the world, videos of cats and of celebrities. Whereas, I didn’t even know what was happening in my local city government.

Watch John’s story on journalism and I encourage you all to subscribe to at least one good local newspaper to help keep journalism alive and to help you know what’s happening in your own city.
