Seattle Post-Intelligencer up for sale, may go digital-only if no buyer is found in 60 days

This news has been out a couple of days but I'm just now getting around to posting on it: the Seattle Post-Intelligencer is for sale. The owners say they will go digital-only if a buyer is not found within 60 days. Which is highly unlikely.

One of the worst offenders of Journalistic Integrity on the face of the earth, rivaling the KC Scar, San Fransissy Gate, and the Daily KOS in their race to the bottom of humanity. YAY!

When a leftwing rag like the Seattle PI can't make it in a leftwing city like Seattle, there is a real problem with the standard newspaper business model.

I didn't know the Seattle PI was the Post Intelligencer. I thought that was some gay rights publication.
