Mickey's guest for the full hour is media scholar Victor Pickard of the University of Pennsylvania.
They discuss Pickard's latest book, "Democracy Without Journalism?"  Pickard describes the dimensions
of recent years' precipitous drop in the employment of reporters, and its likely consequences for society.
He explains the historical roots of this new crisis, and offers remedies that center on building publicly-supported 
journalism institutions that aren't coupled to commercial values.
