The Kansas CIty Kansan went online only, and I don't think it's doing too well. They have enhanced their website however, so they're giving it the old college try.

The thing about a print edition is that it does give you an edge, call it legitimacy, as a "real" newspaper. When you go to a straight online publication and start competing website to website on a level playing field you start getting the situations you have with Tony and Hendricks and kicking The Star's behind on virtually any topic is not hard to do.

No way! Their bias forced me away and I am quite happy with the sites I go to for news now thank you!

The poster who said something like, "If I need to get a shot of propoganda I'd go to their site" speaks for me.

However, via this site, I have quickly learned to like Robert McKee.

M-Watch, you are too kind with the links. But if I go, my computer does not have enough or proper software to DELOUSE afterwards so, no thank you!

No print edition, means no McClatchy!

Is it almost time to do the Happy Dance?

McClatchy below the NYSE $50 million dollar market cap today for delisting again. Closed at 54 cents.
