A2: Ann Arbor News

The Washington Post is one of many publications that picked up an Associated Press article about today’s closing of the Ann Arbor News. The article quotes local attorney George Feldman, who comments on fears that the traditional newspaper’s watchdog role will be lost: ”I don’t fear it – I’m certain. The Ann Arbor News hasn’t been a paper I’ve read for national or international news. It covers city hall, the universities, who’s building what. It had a lot of things wrong with it, but it was our local newspaper.” [Source]
