Give us your thoughts on news!
In Ben Franklin’s day, newspaper publishers were not fighting for more readers and advertising dollars; they were battling to stay out of prison. John Peter Zenger was tried for criticizing the English governor of New York in his New York Weekly Journal, first published in 1733. He won, and the principle of freedom of the press is enshrined in the Bill of Rights.
Today, newspapers are not only delivered to your doorstep; they’re online, along with bloggers, and other news sources.
Do you think newspapers will survive in print, online or both?
Do you think the press still has a role to serve as a watchdog on government?
