The Daily News was founded in 1919 and was the first tabloid newspaper printed in the U.S. It is currently owned by tronc and headquartered in New York City. Its editorial stance has varied throughout its history; it was a conservative paper through the 1940s, and then shifted to a more liberal populist approach in the 1980s. It has a strong reputation for deep sourcing and doorstep reporting of news in NYC. It is a high-quality news source with a left-center bias and a high record of fact checking compared to other news sources.

Hundreds of thousands of people in Montcalm County now have access to naloxone, an opioid overdose antidote, thanks to a partnership between the Montcalm Community Foundation, a group of local businesses and Corewell Health, which is providing the medication in communities across the region. Corewell Health also has naloxone vending machines located in a number of locations, including the Emergency Department at the Montcalm County Hospital and the Belding and Greenville Township Police departments.

A rich and fascinating anatomy of what happens to a town in the years after its newspaper dies—and how some people are trying to revive it. In his superbly written book, Andrew Conte argues that the loss of local journalism is a threat to democracy and provides insight into how and why it is being killed. It is a remarkably important work that will be useful to scholars and ordinary citizens alike.

A troubling story that needs to be told. Conte’s book, based on the work of his Center for Media Innovation at Point Park University in Pittsburgh, is an invaluable contribution to the discussion about the future of local news and journalism. His book is an essential read for anyone interested in the future of our democracy and the vitality of local journalism. —David R.
