Letter: Thanks for commitment to local journalism

Graphic by Lori Deaton

Thank you so much for the 30 years of great local journalism [“30 Years and Growing: Local News Is Here to Stay,” Feb. 6, Xpress.]!

You have all played a very important role in shaping Asheville as it has grown and changed. Your commitment to local makes a huge difference in our little town. I’m grateful to [Publisher] Jeff [Fobes] for his vision. I remember when Green Line first came out — our very own local independent monthly!

Happy birthday and many thanks!

— C.J. Wilson

    Local journalism?

    Well, yeah, if your talking about the two dozen foodie articles that appear in every issues, sure.

    But if you are talking about the investigative journalism that MX once did which, among other things, helped bring down the corrupt Bobby Medford then not only no but a big fat no.

    Unfortunately, that kind of investigative journalism doesn’t sell nearly as much advertising as articles about beer and new places to get ramen.
