Baltimore Newspaper to Close

When we surfed over to the WBAL web site this evening to catch up on the news, we discovered a piece stating that the Baltimore Examiner will stop publishing next month.  Commenting on the story a Loyola Professor noted that we have never needed good journliasm more than we need it right now. “We need people out there who see it as their mission, their calling, to really help us lived informed lives,” the professor said. 

We couldn’t agree more.  Print media is important but it has to dig into stories and present them.  That makes good business sense and it is the model that will help newspapers in these tough economic times.
