Back to the newspaper future

Jay Rosen has a thoughtful piece (what else is new?) today where he challenges the twelve former Knight-Ridder newspapers up for sale to actively get involved in their own futures. In it, he actually makes the suggestion that employees seek out local investors to buy the papers.

What a concept! Local ownership of papers!

Um, isn’t this the way it was before the big corporations got involved? Wouldn’t it be ironic if the collapse of corporate bean counter formulas actually led to a renaissance of real local media?
