The Decline Of Local News

Monday, 3 August

Since 2004, more than 2,000 American newspapers have gone out of business. 'Washington Post' media columnist Margaret Sullivan talks about the decline of local news coverage, a crisis she says is as serious as the spread of disinformation on the internet. Her new book is 'Ghosting the News: Local Journalism and the Crisis of American Democracy.'

Film critic Justin Chang reviews the thriller 'She Dies Tomorrow.'
