The Rebirth of the Free Press


The Columbus Free Press newspaper is making its (re)-debut. The paper grew out of anti-war sentiment at OSU in 1970 and ran until funds dried up in the mid 1990s.  Now it's back and hoping to tackle a host of 21st century issues. This hour we'll discuss the possibilities for a newspaper with the current trends in print journalism.
