RIP Rocky Mountain News

Fang is in the newspaper industry, and he's already lost about a third of his income thanks to one publisher outsourcing part of his job to someone who can work less expensively. Because we met while both working for The Grunion Gazette, we have a soft spot for newspapers. Therefore, we're especially sensitive when we see newspapers closing. This video from the Rocky Mountain News, which published its last issue today, really hit home.

Or you can skip the heart-rending video and just read Fang's to-the-point explanation of how all these changes will affect us.

It's sad and disturbing what's happening to America's newspapers.
