For instance, Reust sees less creative time applied to the "accuracy and tone" of headlines. He also worries that writers and editors brainstorm less. "The general time devoted to good writing is almost nonexistent now," he says.I read the STL P-D on and off for a few years a few years ago, and was struck by how little actual reporting about St. Louis or Missouri took place in that paper. If you could turn to the paper to learn about the city and state you lived in, through understanding the political players and city policies, then you would have something worth reading and something that would foster openness and democracy. Instead, it was all fluff and bullshit.
