Death of a Fishwrap

From today's Daily News:

Note to our readers

You will notice changes in the Daily News beginning with today's edition. For starters, we have redesigned the newspaper to make it more reader-friendly. To save on newsprint costs and adjust to the current adverse economic climate, we are making the following changes to our format:

On Mondays and Tuesdays, you will find the comics, puzzles, TV grid and advice columns in the front section. Dilbert appears on A2 on Mondays. There will be no dedicated Business or Opinion page on Mondays, but both will return on Tuesday.

Wednesday through Sunday, the L.A. LIFE section returns with comics, TV and advice columns and other features. Dining coverage continues on Wednesday and health coverage moves to Thursday.

We thank you for your loyal support as we confront this troubled economy. We are committed to producing a relevant local news report that is focused on the San Fernando Valley.

If you have questions or comments, please call 818-713-3719 or leave a message at feedback@dailynews.com.

the Daily News even fired the guy who streamed live Oscar coverage last night.

The other one downtown is also writhing and flapping. Too bad for the good writers who are still left and those who've been fired.

I would take the Daily News and their local coverage anytime over the Times. Watching the Times sink gives me great pleasure.

"Valley News and Green Sheet" (we knew you when -- the last time it was a decent paper. . .)

On you way to newspaper heaven, wave to the Herex, L.A.'s last newspaper with a backbone.
