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.

Introduction
I read and think a lot. As a result, I write.
