Last year: "We've decided to sell a broadcast radio station that reaches over a million people in order to focus on our true core revenue source, print media."
This year: "Huh. People don't read papers."

I realize Fark is supposed to be Not News, but this is just going above and beyond in the Not News department.

This just in: some dude's 6 year old kid closed his lemonade stand.

So there is no money in newspapers any more?

Huh?  Whoda thunk.

Especially "alternative weeklies".  They pretty much have to give those away at this point anyway, don't they?

The Phoenix is pretty big in Boston. I'm more worried about FNX.

I wouldn't worry about it, it's not much of a college town.

Hey - it's a phoenix. If it goes up in flames, won't it be reborn?

Glad to see the Portland Phoenix will still be around.

Suck it, Beantown!

At this point? Has there ever been an alternative weekly that actually sold for money? What little I read of the Phoenix online leads me to believe that they probably considered themselves too feminist to accept the strip club ad money that keeps every other weekly in the nation afloat.

FTFA: '"It's awful to be here at the end, but it's been a blessing," said Phoenix staff writer Chris Faraone. "I'm anything but angry, I'm just saddened. It's sad to lose an alternative voice in the city." '

Really? 'Alternative' to what? The slightly less liberal Boston Globe?

Had someone say to me that the NYTimes and WaPo weren't 'liberal' papers because they weren't as liberal as he was.

Morans all the way around.

What about the Las Vegas Denver?  Or the Pittsburg Miami?  Or even the Baltimore Los Angeles?

The last time I read it was about five years ago, but they had an entire inserted advertising section for adult services.

So you would be incorrect.

In other news, River Phoenix is also dead.
