More presses go silent

Philly.com reports another group of JRC papers are history.

"Journal Register Co., Yardley, which publishes the Delaware County Daily Times and six other Philadelphia-area daily newspapers, has been quietly closing some of its Pennsylvania weekly newspapers, according to employees," the post noted. Several of these papers abut Chestnut Hill.

This is interesting: the Roxborough Review is moving into the Montgomery Newspapers group.

Journal Register News keeps tabs on the slow death of the company.

Also worth checking is a newspaper project, self-described as follows: "NewspaperProject.org was launched in 2009 by a small group of newspaper executives to support a constructive exchange of information and ideas about the future of newspapers."

People are not reading as much as they should, relying on TV news; however, credibility is what newspapers had to offer and they have worked overtime since the 1970's to end that. The Local tried to maintain credibility and the owners answer by trying to sack the editor.
