Good to see the LION roar in this commentary that newspaper/press associations are Relevant.
“Pressure state press associations… to open their doors to our digital members…,” writes the executive director of LION Publishers, “which provides teaching, resources, and community to independent news entrepreneurs as they build and develop sustainable business.”
There’s an opportunity, for sure.
Associations become the “good housekeeping seal of approval” for legitimate news organizations, regardless of media platforms.
That’s a valuable future.
For local news, trade associations and democracy.
