On September 11th, we were delighted to host a discussion between author and columnist Margaret Sullivan and our own Andy Alexander.  Sullivan, Washington Post media columnist and former New York Times public editor, is one of the nation’s leading voices championing local newspapers across the U.S.  Andy Alexander is a longtime Foothills advisor and former Washington Post Ombudsman.  Our discussion with Margaret on the plight of local news and her new book, Ghosting the News: Local Journalism and the Crisis of American Democracy (2020) can be found below.
