Newspaper meltdown 2: Town Square podcast, Democracy Now
by Larry Geller
The audio file of Thursday's Town Square program is available for a few weeks here. Get it soon, because Hawaii Public Radio takes it down after awhile. The program featured Mark Bowden, correspondent for the Atlantic Monthly and author of Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War, journalist and blogger Ian Lind, administrative officer of the Hawaii Newspaper Guild Wayne Cahill, and former long-time Star-Bulletin reporter Crystal Kua.
On yesterday's Democracy Now (video just a click away on their web pages), host Juan Gonzales hosted a discussion: Newspapers Suffer Spate of Layoffs, Decline in Circulation, Ad Revenue, Stock Price: A Roundtable Discussion on the State of the Industry. Guests were Bernard Lunzer, President of the Newspaper Guild, Chris Hedges, senior fellow at the Nation Institute and co-author of the book Collateral Damage, and Linda Jue, past president of the Society of Professional Journalists, Northern California Chapter.
