Ageism at Star Tribune?

Crummy news from the Star Tribune newsroom. It is eliminating its aging beat and sending Warren Wolfe to another beat. Warren has a great interest in aging and was always a pleasure to work with. His passion for aging services is greatly valued by the professionals in this profession and the readers he served.Questions for the Strib? Why would you eliminate the aging beat, when we are facing an unprecedented, transformational age wave in Minnesota? In 2020, for the first time we’re going to have more seniors than children.Aging is all about local news and it’s interesting because it impacts all of us: retirement being redefined, new technology helping people live independently, new senior housing and living innovations, increased longevity and wellness, the financial and public policy decisions we’ll have to make as society to deal with costs that come with increased longevity . . and on and on… . Maybe if the Strib is not going to have a beat or column dedicated to aging, like a number of other big city papers are, perhaps it will move aging stories into the business page, metro page, features and elsewhere. Ignoring aging has another name: ageism.
