As someone who actually cared about getting the JOA approved in 1989
between the Free Press and News, and who is obsessive enough to notice that they've been breaking the law
when joint publishing on holidays (instead of only on weekends), and had friends on both sides of the strike
, and who was offended by Gannett
basically thumbing its nose at the industry, the market and the law by buying out Knight Ridder
, today's announcement that the Freep
and the News
are going to be home delivered only three days a week
would've been a stake in my heart. . . if they hadn't already broken it into a million pieces.
Yes, the CSM is going online
only, and Entertainment Weekly
is reportedly thinking about it, but living in the first
major metropolitan area
without a daily newspaper delivery? Oy
I'd say that they last person leaving Detroit should turn out the lights, but the bulb's been foreclosed on.
