Yep, another newspaper is closing.
Gannett couldn’t sell Arizona’s oldest, the Tucson Citizen, so it’s last issue will come out March 21st. KJZZ reported yesterday the final edition would be a commemorative issue, featuring highlights from the paper’s 138-year history.
I was looking for something else, but I found this. It’s a reasonable answer to the “Little Rushes,” out in the media universe. Makes sense no matter which way you lean politically. My favorite quote:
“Here is the truth: Most newspaper editors are not liberals or conservatives. They are idealists disguised as cynics. What they really value — what most of them would trade their IRAs or First Edition Hemingways for — is a little insight.”
