When their circulation department calls me, I suggest to the caller that it appears the Statesman would rather go broke than provide unbiased news coverage. Their coverage hasn't changed, and they continue toward failure.

Looking forward to the Austin Soviet Statesman going belly up.
The fact that it’s a Cox paper makes it all the sweeter.
It’s always great news when Lefty journos lose their jobs...
I guess I have a bit of sympathy for “anyone” losing their livelihood, however not much for those that spread misinformation. Not a great choice for a career or your soul.
I would LOVE to see a real Conservative newspaper...but even if it could of happened...we are long past the point of a “paper”. I get what I need on the inter-webs...FR, Drudge, Huffpo (always give the other side equal time to reinforce my direction), etc.
Oh, how I will dance when the NYTs finally dies. That will be a happy day.
good for the stateman!
used to live in austin and read that anti-bush pos.
