In Response To The Rockaway Beat Column
The decline of the newspaper industry is in part due to exactly what you are discussing. Once you decide to editorialize the news to what you think readers want and to only report one news item over another you are no longer reporting the news. I do not enjoy reading all of the crime and horrendous acts people do to each other, but, that is what is happening in Rockaway. I do notice that all of the good things that happen are also beng reported. What people have to realize is, is that, IT IS WHAT IT IS. The Wave is very good at reporting things as they are. Thanks for all the hard work Howard.
