But what will this mean for the quality of news that we all receive? Over the last few days, the war in Iraq has raged on, Scooter Libby's sentence has been commuted, and President Bush has met with Russian leader Vladimir Putin to hammer out key strategic issues facing both countries. I turned to my prototype small, local paper-- my hometown St. Augustine (FL) Record-- to see how they have been informing the populace of the latest important developments. Some stories:
Commission puts an end to golf cart controversy
Teacher pursues 'endangered' foods
Beetle invades county trees
Abandoned baby bats getting expert care
Thank God for the internet.
