Oregon Bill's comments:
>What concerns me is complex topics like health care reform and climate change legislation might not be explored and explained fully due to the upheaval occurring in journalism.
I'm not sure I would trust the Oregonian as a source on these topics. They don't have the news staff to cover big national or international stories well, even now. Pretty sure that a new staff of poorly paid interns won't help.
Most of the Oregonian's articles on health care, for example, are from wire services, or reprinted days later from The New York Times.
The Times, in contrast to the Oregonian, still practices excellent journalism, and has the experienced staff to do it well.
I am more than willing to pay for good journalism, which is why for national and international news we subscribe to the Times.
But the Oregonian is not worth it - I'll get my coupons online.
