2009 will likely be the year the Twin Cities becomes a one-newspaper town. The closest thing to us is, perhaps, Denver where the Rocky Mountain News and the Denver Post (owned by Dean Singleton, who also owns the St. Paul Pioneer Press) are slugging it out to be the last newspaper standing.
The Rocky isn’t going down without a fight, and it’s willing to shed its dignity in the process.
The newspaper has created iwantmyrocky.com to rally support for the newspaper. In the process, its employees get to publicly beg for their jobs.
