Columnist says newspapers provide "civic conscience"

Georgie Anne Geyer writes for Universal Press Syndicate. She had this to say about the decline of newspapers:

"My quarrel with my friends who brag about reading news on the Internet is that they are taking an active step in the formation of a country without a civic conscience. Only newspapers can provide this, with their multitalented staffs and with the scope of their reporting. Without them, welcome to a truly depressing future - and please, don’t let anyone tell you it had to be."
