Pay for good journalism

I am writing in support of Art Cullen’s 1/30/18 notebook article championing independent newspapers and the need to pay for good journalism. I live in Davenport and take the local paper but became a subscriber to the Storm Lake Times after you were awarded the Pulitzer Prize. I have not been disappointed.

I won’t repeat Mr. Cullen’s points because I couldn’t do it as well but I will strongly second the premise that many scandals were uncovered by persistent journalists. I read every article published by the Indy Star about Larry Nassar and Michigan State.

Thank you.
