    Like everywhere our papers are going under. The "other" paper in her district, the Ganett-owned St. Cloud Times, has lost 40% of its staff in the last two years. They shut down their presses. The paper is now laid out in DesMoines. The remaining reporters are all now required to produce video, audio, and still images in addition to writing copy. That leaves precious little time for journalism.

    The result? Any of these remaining "reporters" that can get in a room with someone like Bachmann will never ask a hard question-- it's much more important that they get in the room again the next time she's in town so they can file their requisite video/audio/photo burp for the company.
