Growing Decline of Media: Reading About Hawthorne in ... the OC Register?

Now this is a new media low.

Already, local papers are getting bought out because of declining sales, revenue, adds, readers, etc.

Now, it's gotten to the point where newspapers with one kind of title are promoting stories from other counties, which have no clear connection to the readers in that area.

Case in point:

Here is the top section of the OC Register eblast highlighting the top stories for November 8, 2017.

Notice that the second story focuses on the death of a dog, murdered by the owner, who lives in ... Hawthorne?

Hawthorne, California is in the South Bay section of Los Angeles County.

That's not Orange County, people. Why would Orange County readers by learning about this animal cruelty incident? The story is not large or noteworthy enough to have a widespread expansion in a paper. This makes no sense at all.

What are we witnessing, then?

The mainstream liberal corporate media is running out of money, revenue, readership, and now relevance. It looks like the entire Southern California News Group is running out of reporters, too, since they can't pay them anymore. They have to poach stories from Los Angeles County to have something to print in an Orange County newspaper.

Really? The whole news group is falling into decline.
