After 149 years and 311 days, the Rocky Mountain News of Denver, Colorado, USA published its final edition. The newspaper is just one of the casualties of the global economic crisis.
The IMF is warning of a "Great Recession", even as T&T politicians bury their heads in the sand. Hopefully local media managers aren't jumping in to play in the sandbox but are taking stock.
A videographer documented the last two months of life at the Rocky Mountain News and produced a fantastic documentary. One of the striking interviews is that of Reporter Laura Frank thanking readers and sources, but also apologising to them.
Take a look.
