    A lot of territory between those cities.

    As nafselon mentioned, interesting covers, but the paper's devotion to local sports is amazing, in print and online. Menu includes heavy load or preps, a D1 mid-major in CSU Bakerfield, a juco and an AHL team.

    This is about as dumb a statement as you've ever made. Corporate ownership ruined newspapers. Family ownership is what made them successful. As soon as big media took over, the industry turned south. Oh, and there was this thing that came along called the internet that might have contributed to their demise too.

    Having a de facto monopoly on local advertising is what made them successful.

    What? Who sold the newspapers to corporate? The families. The families gave up and sold so they could salvage a few million dollars.

    Yeah, they sold them. They built them. They didn't tear them down. The new owners tore them down. I worked for a family that owned a newspaper who did this. And they had nothing to do with what happened to the newspaper after they sold ownership.

    If I sell you a new car and you drive the fuck out of it and ruin it, is it my fault it's ruined because I sold it to you? I should have kept it? That's makes about as much fucking sense as your argument makes.
