"Pickler’s Back When A Brand New Invention"
It’s obvious that the financial problems at daily newspapers around the country have roots that go beyond quality. But still, given the lousy job the AP is doing covering the campaign, and given the extent to which many dailies rely on the AP for a lot of coverage, it’s hard to see how anyone will be saved. I get paid money to read newspapers and complain about them, so a newspaper that’s riddled with errors still has some value to me. But to an ordinary person, unless the newspaper is going to do a reasonable job of reporting the news there’s no real point — comic books are always going to have prettier pictures.
