The Tucson Citizen’s Jennifer Boice writes the 138-year-old paper’s (probable) “epitaph:”
About 65 talented Citizen staffers are being shot into an economy that is losing rather than creating jobs. The newspaper industry is so distressed that few of us will be reporters, newspaper designers, editors or news photographers again.
It is a tragic loss of talent and enthusiasm.
UPDATE: And then, on top of all that, I spell Tucson wrong, twice. Typos corrected. (Thanks, John.)Liz Cox Barrett is a freelance writer and graphic designer in Kalispell, Montana. She worked as a newspaper journalist in Denver and Kalispell for 20 years.
