Happy Birthday, Winston-Salem Journal and all the best to its reporters who are out covering stories during a pandemic. That being said, I would like to wish a plague on Berkshire Hathaway for not investing in the Journal, despite having the financial resources to do so. Warren Buffett lied when he said that he loved newspapers and valued them as important community resources. Berkshire Hathaway recently “sold” the W-S Journal and many other newspapers to Lee Enterprises, a cost-cutting corporate outfit that doesn’t inspire confidence in the paper’s future. The city’s newspaper of record officially turns 123 years old today.
