Re: “Letting It Bleed

Jeff, your comment about the morning paper is spot on. We canceled our subscription except for Sunday because it never came in time for us to read it before leaving for work, and we had no interest in it by the time we got home at night. However, pretty soon the Sunday edition will be overshadowed by the weekend USA Today. You can even get most of the Sunday ads and coupons online now.

Not to mention decreasing pertinent content. Maybe if they focused more on local news and less on wasted space full of national and world news that people get everywhere else, they might survive. Although, so often the local news they do print is very repetitive and one-sided.

The most popular edition of the CA (other than Sunday) is the Wednesday Food section, and I saw where they are working to reduce it and are getting pushback from the few readers who are left. Speaking of "sections", how can you call a one-sheet-folded piece of newsprint a "section"?

I remember the Press Scimitar, too, and how my dad would devour it after dinner every night. In its day I seem to remember that it was viewed as being the more liberal of the two papers. Thanks for bringing back those memories.
