MEDIA DEPRESSION TAKES DOWN THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS

This is brutal. The Rocky Mountain News has gone right out of business after 150 years. Final edition is tomorrow.

This is on the heels of depressing news in Canada that CTV is planning to close two A-Channel stations in southwestern Ontario (in Windsor and Wingham) and also their station in Brandon, CKX. ( CKX is CTV-owned but, oddly enough, is actually a CBC affiliate.) They're just going to hand over the licenses to the CRTC. Meanwhile rumors continue to swirl about the fate of Canwest-owned CHCH Hamilton and the rest of the E! Network.

Don't people read or watch any news anymore? Holy freaking crap! Yikes!
