Hope and Change...lol! I guess this is an ‘unexpected’ drop in revenue because they are too stupid to get the point that only Obama tools still believe anything that they print.

They must be hanging on so that they can be part of the official commie propaganda press after our country is turned into a marxist dictatorship.

Increased unemployment numbers, loss of my fellow American's jobs sources of income never resonated with such satisfaction.

The underlying question regarding the closing of the local bureaus is this;Does closing the local bureaus ultimately really make any difference in their overall survival, that they continue to financially hemorrhage until when rigor mortis sets in for the dead-tree media, or perhaps there is a viable money-making business model for the remnants of the Fourth Estate to eke out a meager survival in order to hold on to the reins of power??

I say, no. That even now slimmed down left with their core business they know all too well they don't have much time left.

BUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA!!!

The Post has gotten very, very thin lately. It is simply wasting away, like it has a chronic illness. The New York Post, OTOH, is getting thicker. It romps through this difficult business cycle as if it were Hearst’s New York Journal reborn.

I'll prepare something appropriate for this somber occasion...

WaPo should put some ice on it --- or something like that.
