Democracy and the Press

APRIL 25, 2010 | With Zoe Corneli, Michael Stoll

Zoe Corneli investigates how journalists in the SF bay area have responded to the media crisis. She talks to Michael Stoll, executive director of the San Francisco Public Press. Stoll fears that the future of the press could become “a million websites referring to each other, but no new information coming out.” In response, he and a group of friends started up a new local newspaper, a physical paper with great local reporting, comics and a crossword puzzle.
