Crushing Newsprint Tariffs Threaten Newspaper

By Reed Anfinson
Publisher, Swift County Monitor-News

Newspapers in America are under assault, but the assailant this time isn’t the one you would think. Yes, the internet continues to take away advertising dollars without giving anything back to citizens in the form of community reporting. But it isn’t the internet we are talking about this time; it is Wall Street.

It is the big money hedge fund players who care about one thing and one thing only –profits. They could care less about the impact of their actions on communities throughout America that rely on their newspapers for information about local governments, their sports teams, their community events, the challenges they face, or the triumphs they achieve.
