Missing news

April 9, 2011


To the editor:

Hello, Journal-World. Is anybody home?

In a recent J-W editorial, readers were invited to “get to know” candidates through forums, interviews and news stories available on LJWorld.com. Approximately 50 percent of my neighbors do not use the Internet, and a different 50 percent do not know what OnDemand is. So, in a neighborhood that, at one time, had a solid voting record, 11.5 percent of the registered voters actually voted. (The results are online, but not in the newspaper.)

Why are we buying the newspaper? Not for a summary of the candidates and their positions and not for a review of precinct results. I must be missing something. I thought newspaper publishers were concerned about the lack of readership. No wonder. The newspaper is not printing news.
