I wrote an attack on Warren Buffett's foray into the newspaper business. Nothing personal.. I just wanted to make the point that the people in charge of our newspapers don't even know how to help themselves, never mind help the public.

Warren Buffett could've used newspapers to encourage literacy, to encourage school subjects generally. The more informed readers you have, the more newspapers you can sell. I don't believe he ever thought of this angle.

Instead, he just let everybody get more illiterate and more ignorant. 

Please, is anybody out there who would like to use newspapers to help Americans academically and educationally? A lot of interesting stuff can be woven into a newspaper. Instead we have millions of people who don't even know where Russia is. We have millions of people don't know what 6×7 is.

Why do our newspapers have to follow the schools themselves? No, they should supplement and supplant the schools, which are asymptotically approaching zero value. (For example:  https://drop.space/watch/your-brain-on-public-schools-dumb-people-a...)
