It was announced this evening that the Philadelphia "Daily News" soon would no longer publish as an independent newspaper, but instead would begin printing as a separate "edition" of the Philadelphia "Inquirer". Both papers are owned by the same parent company which announced only last week that it was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. In doing so the company insisted that the filing was only to reduce its debt load, and that current operations were financially strong for both papers - - - maybe not.......
It’ll just make it easier to shut down.

Dueling movie reviewers?

So, two money-losing papers combine forming a single paper that will lose money more efficiently. Might add a few more months before the owners finally give the barely breathing corpse the coup de grâce and shove it into the nearest newspaper mass grave.
