    logical relationship

    (context: But what's good for Big Media's bottom line isn't always good for the rest of us. The first casualty of "media company towns" would be journalism. When one firm owns most of a city's news outlets, who needs a bunch of competing newsrooms? Investigative reporting and extensive local coverage requires a costly staff. It's far cheaper to syndicate fare from headquarters than to support a diversity of local voices. If your readers and viewers don't like it, where else are they going to go?)

    1)What does local voices mean? Does it mean local small media companies?
    2)Why does the "local voices" need support? Who support them?
    3)What's the logical relationship between the setences?

    yes!
    2)Why does the "local voices" need support? Who support them?
    If they are small local media companies, then in a monopoly (a 'media company town') environment, local voices become separate media newsrooms, each of which have their own costs and needs to support.
    3)What's the logical relationship between the setences?[/QUOTE]
    Big Media has an adverse effect on jouralism because it tends to lessen the diversity of news coverage in favour of a cheaper and easier conglomerated news franchise.
