    Google is the polar opposite of privacy.

    Wanting to save something is a sentiment without action.

    News is a business. There are employees, or at least interns, equipment, locations needed to film. Yeah sure a lot of this overhead can be avoided, but if you want to be clean and professional (and thats half of getting people to listen) then you're going to have some overhead.

    If you want to save any business, when the bottom has fallen out, you have to redesign the cash flow, find new customers, new niches.

    A sentiment won't save local news. Unless maybe local politicians can be convinced to provide a subsidiary.

    So few still read the paper anyway.

    And television news has a credibility problem and is dying.

    I suspect independent journalism is going to become a fairly large industry again in a few years, looking forward to it too.

    @Wisecrack It hasn't always had this problem. CNN has been around longer than any of the other news networks and I don't see them dying anytime soon if Ted Turner's promise to never stop covering news until the world ends is anything to go by.
