In a few days, a new year will be upon us. For many people, that change will have an almost spiritual significance, as it signals a time to take a break from the regular daily round, reflect on the year gone by, and conceive a grand design for the one ahead.

On a less lofty plane, the New Year’s holidays may simply give us the green light to gorge on seasonal osechi meals and turn into a complete couch potato, mindlessly flipping through TV channels catching any number of those “special” New Year’s programs.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
