Journalism is about making the community better. It’s about challenging people directly, with information. Newspapers, like artists, are out to affect the world.
If newspapers die, then some part of society dies with them.

Pushing or shoving toward the future has a way of inciting more rebellion than cooperation. So many little steps comprise only one full step.
