February 27th, 2009, by

As Tamika mentioned in December when The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press ended their daily home delivery, newspapers are in a heap of trouble.

Today, Denver’s Rocky Mountain News closed shop for good. The Pulitzer Prize-winning San Francisco Chronicle and Seattle’s oldest daily Seattle Post-Intelligencer could go next.

Not depressing enough? Then be sure to check out Newspaper Death Watch, a Web site that is “Chronicling the Decline of Newspapers and the Rebirth of Journalism.”
