Would the Last Honest Reporter Please Turn on the Lights?
With readership/audience share plummeting many media entities are ruthlessly cutting staff. A growing list of papers are canceling their affiliation with the AP wire service. Orson Scott Card, a novelist and academic, writes about how the press has squandered its credibility, first over Iraq and now with Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac as it hypes the prospects of Barak Obama.
