Re: “News deserts a threat to democracy,” by Hal Tarleton, Saturday:

Well said, Mr. Tarleton. Hopefully, the trend will reverse. Social media posts and website “news” about celebrities’ relationships will be replaced by legitimate news.

The decline of print journalism can lead to an uninformed electorate, as you make plain. Thank you for a terrific column.
