The real news community newspapers provide
Susan Rowell, publisher of the Lancaster (S.C.) News, was elected president of the National Newspaper Association two weeks ago for 2017-18. Here’s a quote from Susan during her acceptance speech, as the “Quote of the Week” in the South Carolina Press Association newsletter:
“We report real news every day. I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure readers
back home define real news as who won the Friday night football game or
what the local festival organizers are planning for the weekend. Or who needs help
because they lost everything in a fire. Or who really has died.
That’s the real news community newspapers provide.”
