A 360° Discussion of Foreign, National and Local Policy Issues

What can be done to keep local journalism alive?

For Monday, April 8, we decided to discuss “local journalism,” particularly in the Blue Hill Peninsula context.

John O. has provided some relevant links:

A House bill to grant tax credits to support local journalism: the Local Journalism Sustainability Act
The American Journalism Project (and description at UPenn’s Center for High Impact Philanthropy)
Local newspapers are dying. Here’s how we can save them (Editorial: LA Times)
How public policy can save local news (Opinion: Columbia Journalism Review)

Consider some local resources, such as:

The Ellsworth American
Penobscot Bay Press
The Quietside Journal
