Passing Press

Yesterday I received a letter from the Financial Times stating that as of April 20th, 2013, they would stop publishing in the state of Florida. I was invited to continue my subscription, free for the rest of the year … online.

Earlier this week, the folks that run the Cleveland Plain Dealer announced that they would only deliver papers three days a week. Subscribers were invited to the digital version.

Detroit, Cleveland and New Orleans now … no longer have a major daily print newspaper.

Remember when they used to make all those great movies about the newspaper business? No more, I guess. The passing press. I think we, as a society, will mourn their passing … at some point.
