Northeast News Publishes Blank Front Page In Statement Of Survival
Since 2004, 1,800 newspapers have closed in the United States. That’s about 100 per year.
Northeast News has been covering the historic northeast of Kansas City for 89 years, but the lack of revenue could mean the end of this local publication. On March 24, the paper ran a blank front page demonstrating how their reporting will vanish without adequate support. Journalists weigh in on the fate of local publications.
