Death By a Thousand Cuts

Posted by redsatellite on March 10, 2009

I think old Ling Chi and the Chinese were on to something. These days, every liberal rag in America is suffering from this slow form of torture. But then again, it couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of pandering invertebrates. Two days ago, the New York Times had to sell their building to stay afloat. Yesterday, the leftwing proselytizers over at the San Francisco Chronicle had to make a deal with the devil (err…I mean union) to keep their newspaper alive.

San Francisco Chronicle has reached a tentative agreement with its largest union on contract concessions, a key step in keeping the newspaper from being sold or closed, officials announced Monday.

The Chronicle told employees last month that the paper was at risk if it did not stop bleeding millions. Its closing would leave San Francisco as the first U.S. metropolis without a major daily paper.

Staff members at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer received similar news recently, with Hearst ownership saying the paper would be closed or turned into an Internet-only publication.

Similar financial pressures caused the
Detroit Free Press and Detroit News to announce in December that they would become the first major metropolitan newspapers in the United States to end daily home delivery. The owners of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News filed for bankruptcy last month because of a huge debt load.

Secular progressive newspapers are hemorrhaging money. And one by one…these leftwing diatribes are going down. As far as I’m concerned, it couldn’t happen….soon enough. Today, they’re only rearranging the deck chairs on their ship:

The Titanic.
