Letter: The Advocate needs national-world news

I concur with the readers who have questioned The Advocate’s expansion of local coverage at the cost of virtually all national and international stories.

Though The Advocate has always focused on local news, it has never been parochial. I have depended on the newspaper to alert me to international trends and the evolving national conversation. We are part of this world and this country even if we sometimes seem like the weird sister.

I regret this new, diminished format. Or is it merely that you are in negotiation for new syndication or AP contracts?
