Posted on 02/25/2009 12:36:33 PM PST by Halfmanhalfamazing
The collapse of the newspaper industry continues apace; now it's the San Francisco Chronicle that is likely to be sold or even closed down in a matter of months. This follows Sunday's bankruptcy filing by the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia Daily News, just two and a half years after investors paid more than $500 million for the company.
We've known for a while that the newspaper industry is in desperate trouble, but it didn't occur to us until recently that it may be a leading indicator.

Can’t happen fast enough,,, may the nyslimes be right behind.
The New York Times isn’t far behind...if not ahead.
It will be a red letter day when the chains ans siezure notices are put on all the doors of the Red Rag Hag, (formerly known as the Old Grey Lady).
The irony is that the paper is located in a city that wants everything for free.
My horoscope today said, “Good news is a’comin”. And it was right.
Ad $ down because their boy talked down the economy.
“tis an ill wind indeed that blows no good.”
Isn’t the SF Chronicle more conservative then the SacBee?
Hillary Clinton was/is more conservative than Barack Obama.
NY Slimes first, please!
The only reason I ever subscribed to the Chron was the Sunday crossword, which I think was simply compied from the NYT. And that subscription expired back in 1993. I’ve been online ever since and have never needed a newspaper. The only value of any newspaper of my acquaintance was that my current job was listed in the local paper.
BTW, I interviewed for a spot at the paper. I didn’t get it. Guess I was overqualified (I could add).
Well fold already.
This is not difficult, keep feeding the left/rats and they are the only ones who will buy these rags
This makes me sooooo sad....NOT!
...and in an area that gave birth and development to the technology that fuels the Internet.
I thought Al Gore invented the internet?
I hope there is no bailout of the tree killers =o)
Maybe we should buy it. I’ll kick in a twenny. Naturally I’d want full editorial control...heh heh...
Let’s be careful what we hope for. If the NY Times goes down, then I fully expect the leftists to create a new “national” newspaper, funded by the gubmint, of course, to take its place. PRAVDA, American Style.
They are a Bizzaro world newspaper, no relationship to the real world whatsoever.
They cant go out of business soon enough, in my opinion.
I hope the Mercury News is next.
Both are anti-American, anti-family, anti-capitalist tools of our enemies.
Their bias is every bit as blatant in their articles as it is in their editorials.
BANKRUPT the ENEMEDIA!
