Blogger talks about news after the demise of the newspaper

With most people turning to online media and the slow downfall of the traditional newspaper, many people are wondering what will become of the “news”. Blogger Seth Godin poses a more concrete question. “What will we miss when newspapers disappear?”
Godin writes: “What’s left is local news, investigative journalism and intelligent coverage of national news. Perhaps 2% of the cost of a typical paper.” Advertisements, comic strips, restaurant and book reviews are all still available online anytime. Godin asks who will care about true investigative journalism when there is no one to pay for it.
Christine Huang considers Godin’s argument.
