I wanted to start noting down newspapers that are dead or dying out -
1) Seattle PI - If it's not sold by March 10th, will be closed down. After 146 years.
2) Rocky Mountain News - closing down today - Feb 28th, 2009. After 150 years.
We really are looking at the death of an entire industry.
Also, according to Yahoo News
, Four owners of 33 U.S. daily newspapers have sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the past 2 1/2 months.
