Read my story about Journatic, a company that churns out tons of local news content for many U.S. newspapers: http://www.poynter.org/latest-news/top-stories/179555/journatic-staffer-takes-this-american-life-inside-outsourced-journalism/
I disagree - if I want local news, I want someone who knows what is going on in my City. I do agree with the lack of choice, especially if the reader is dependent upon print news only. However, most larger media outlets integrate radio as well as print - radio often does a much better job of getting local news out because the news can be supplemented with talk radio, the latter of which can be both of value or misleading.

Blogger, journalist, media and politics junkie and lately, a new mom. Passionate about reforming the news business.
I read and think a lot. As a result, I write.
Became a journalist entirely from scratch. Whether I can be consistently paid to be one is another matter entirely...
