    The Return of the Moguls MOBI ô The Return MOBI return book, moguls epub, The Return download, of the ebok, Return of the epub, The Return of the Moguls PDF/EPUBI received this book as a Goodreads Giveaway The book is a well written account of the decline of newspapers during the past 20 years as the internet has taken over and what a select few wealthy owners are doing to turn things around It is clear that the author sees journalism as an important part of our democratic society which I whole heartedly agree with I find it somewhat troubling that the only way to save the institutions meant to keep the wealthy and powerful in check is for them to be saved by wealthy and powerful men but the examples set by Jeff Bezos and John Henry in the book would be an ideal model for future owners to follow to keep newspapers running and reporting the stories that citizens need to know about While the author doesn't find any ultimate fix for how to keep newspapers running well into the future he does
