Are We Losing Our Impulse?
The Rocky Mountain News, then the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, then The Ann Arbor News: all closed or closing. On March 27, The Christian Science Monitor published its last daily run, transitioning to a weekly print edition. The San Francisco Chronicle clings to life support, potentially leaving one of America’s starlight cities without a major daily. And those better off are either bankrupt, laying off 20% to 30% of their staffs and/or sharing resources.
