  • The Need Is Real “Newspapers, localTV stations, and local radio stations employ fewer reporters now than they used to, and many of those that have survived have become more like 1930s wire service reporters... “This has resulted in a shift in the balance of power – away from citizens, toward powerful institutions.” - Federal Communications Commission
