Poking fun and keeping them honest. That’s what Newspapers used to do with local politicians. Some call it watchdog journalism or doing your civic duty. But over time, local media companies lost their backbone for this kind of story telling. Not only have these TV, Radio & Newspapers lost their journalist mojo, they lost a big chunk of their readers, viewers, listeners & advertisers too. Good thing this inter-web thing came along.
Hyper-local news and info is more popular than ever, just in a different form with a new breed of local media moguls gaining control.
