Sad

Did you guys know that it appears the San Francisco Chronicle will go under (http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2009/feb/25/san-francisco-chronicle-owner-warns-of-sale)?  I lived just north of San Francisco for quite a while.  I have to say that I felt the Chronicle was one of the least biased newspapers I’ve ever read.  There were some great writers for this paper.  Also, it’s one of the few papers that still sent out it’s own reporters for most of the news.  They weren’t guilty of mindlessly repeating AP nonsense.  They didn’t get in trouble for just reprinting every anti-US story that AP sent along.  It is one seriously good paper.

I’m sure many people believe this paper is going under for ideological reasons, but I’m an endless pragmatist.  I believe that alternate free news sources are going to put print out of business.  Just that simple.  Simple, but sad.
