    Can anyone shed any light on this?

    If I had to bet on what will be the next big paper to fold, my money is on this one...

    I love the section, but I have a hard time believing this paper will be around five years from now...

    Yes, since abandoning paying customers is such a smart move ...


    (The Saturday numbers are so high since the Post doesn't publish Saturdays.)
  4. New Age journalist? Do I have to provide my own crystals? (Sorry, could not help myself.)

    I have plenty of computer-assisted reporting skills. I have Google bookmarked.

    Their circulation is half what it used to be and not having a Sunday paper is obviously killing them from an advertising standpoint...

    Circulation everywhere is "half what it used to be."

    You've said this drivel before and you're wrong. The JOA money is split evenly between the papers, unlike everywhere else where there is a clear, dominant paper that has an advantage with the JOA.

    Any and all advertising dollars that come in for each paper are split between the papers. Yes, including Sunday. The same with Saturday when only the Rocky publishes.

    The Post and the Rocky have virtually identical circulation numbers. And, yes, the total is probably about half from a decade ago. For both papers. News flash: It's the same everywhere else.

    That's not to say someday there won't be a paper that folds. You could say that anywhere these days. But to say the Rocky will be "the next big paper to fold" is shortsighted and misguided because you're basing things on facts you clearly don't know anything about.

    What does this "new age" garbage mean? I kinda like the old age better, back when newspapers practiced real journalism.

    Do you have to listen to John Tesh to qualify?
