Good riddance to newspapers

Not everyone is equally saddened by the death of  newspapers…take for example Al Giordano

But reading through the comments to the post,  one is struck by how consistent and self-gratulatory the opinion is  – an example of  Daily Me groupthink?  2 or 3 commenters  do in fact provide (apologetically) some nuance and mild dissent,  but there's a price to be paid for the demise of corporate newspapers, e.g. the high cost of  maintaining correspondents and prodcuing quality foreign news.
