    “A final word: I hope that being “listened to” doesn’t mean some poor overworked Patch editor is reprimanded. The best solution would be hiring local journalists to go out and do original coverage. Unfortunately, that model proved to be too expensive”

    Yes – it means the reprimand for exactly the reasons you state. Hiring local journalists? Do you really think that’s going to happen? (Serious question, if you’re a local journalist.)
