Experts: BANG cuts will hurt local coverage

You can read the story and the quoted "experts" here, but the fact is, other experts — people like us who are trained to gather the news, "experts at covering city hall, politics, local sports" — have been sounding the alarm for years.

But as this story points out, media owners haven't quite gotten it. "Critics of the cuts by MediaNews said the company is too focused on eliminating jobs and saving money, which in the long run risks the viability of local newspapers."

Media experts aren't the only folks worried about the long-term viability of our newspapers. So are we.
