This week the Hearst Corporation will announce if it will shutter the 146-year-old Seattle Post-Intelligencer
or turn it into an online-only publication with a much reduced staff. This is only the latest in a seemingly endless list of newspapers that are threatened with closure. Jacqueline Banaszynski, who holds the Knight Chair in Editing at the Missouri School of Journalism, talks to Farai and John about what it means to a community to lose a newspaper.
"What's at risk is more than newspapers and newspaper jobs. What's at risk is the foundations of traditional journalism, which are the foundations of how we keep our democracy going."
— Jacqueline Banaszynski of the Missouri School of Journalism on the importance of saving newspapers
