Biting the hand that feeds

Posted By on Fri, Jan 23, 2009 at 12:11 PM

An alternative newspaper in Atlanta writes about a Georgia legislative proposal to create a secretary of state website for all legal advertising, thus ending a valuable, even life-sustaining, business for smaller print newspapers. Going to web legal would save governments huge amounts of money.

I mention it because of the recent item about Hussman's Northwest Arkansas Times hoping to keep Fayetteville legal ads, even if it's the high bidder. Atlanta newspaper says the idea of website legals makes sense, but goes on to report that the website idea has its own set of special interests being served.
