What's interesting about this comment is that this is an example of the ripple effect of the decline of American print newspapers. Unless they can make up for the decline in print subscriptions with digital subscriptions, then the papers are losing money and can't afford to cover as much. For example, in NYC, sportswriter Frank Isola was among lots of staff laid-off. At least ESPN has cranked up his facetime so he's not hurting for money so much. But in places like Rochester, the population needs to support the D&C so the D&C can support the population (and its local sports). Unfortunately, many people - especially the young - care less about local issues and more about national issues because they are flooded with national news all over the web and social media. Furthermore, they're not watching the local broadcast news to even learn to care about local issues and read local newsmedia on the web or in print. This is a classic example of the ripples of changes in society.
