McAdam, an attorney and great writer who obviously enjoys his new perch, has just published his 1,000th article for the Examiner. His articles get right to the point, and he’s not afraid of offending the sensibilities of corrupt and criminal politicians and bureaucrats. Plus, it’s solid, accurate information.
In his latest article, McAdam notes the decline of the “old” media and the dramatic shift in the way in which Kentuckians get their news.
“Electronic news delivery, free and instantaneous, is clearly the wave of the future,” McAdam writes.
He also notes the decline of Kentucky’s largest newspaper, the Courier-Journal:
“As the paper’s death-rattle becomes more audible, the home edition grows increasingly thinner. Pretty soon, there won’t be enough paper in the C-J to wrap a dead fish, or to line the bottom of a birdcage. We used to joke that ‘Today’s news is tomorrow’s garbage; and the Courier-Journal has speeded up the process by 24 hours.’ Guess that’s not so funny anymore.”
By contrast, the Examiner is the fastest-growing news source in the country. It publishes in 238 individual cities, each of which has their own Web editions.
Helping Kentuckians recapture their freedom is the Bluegrass Institute’s mission. But that takes informed patriots. And we can all be grateful for the work that McAdam and other online “informants” do.
