I and many others predicted that the Internet would be the slow demise of newspapers; It's faster to get the news from the Internet, 24 hour news channels, websites and some blogs. As computers get cheaper and hi-speed Internet becomes more affordable, more newspapers will go out of business.
Due to the loss of profitability, The Rocky Mountain News will shut down operations on February 27,2009.
That being said, I'm sorry to see people lose their jobs. Unfortunately, many people continue to become unemployed as the economy gets worse.
This video is directly from the Rocky Mountain News site at YouTube. In the video below, you will see the annoucement of the closing of newspaper to the staff of The Rocky Mountain News.
