I should add that while almost everything that young woman (heh, did I just write that?) says in her letter is true, there are only two real cures for people caught up in the last throes of American journalism. The first is to leave, and I have total respect for the people who've made that choice, but the other is to just produce great journalism. I have some friends at the Daily News who do that on a regular basis but this week I was really struck by the work of two old (heh, did I just write that?) friends from my years at Newsday.
So if you want to feel better about journalism, read this.
