blog_rockyAs major cities like San Francisco and Seattle face the prospect of having no major daily newspaper in circulation, we urge readers to take a look at the final posts from the Rocky Mountain News, a newspaper older than the state of Colorado itself, which folded last month and left Denver a one-newspaper town (with the Denver Post still in business) — particularly of interest is this eloquent piece, “Rocky Kept Swinging Until the Very End”; also of note is the passing of James Bellows, the former editor of the New York Herald Tribune and supporter of the New Journalism movement, who died on Friday at 86. The media landscape continues its tectonic shifts.
