Pioneer Press: Go Star Tribune!

Here’s something we didn’t expect to see in the Sunday Pioneer Press – an ad talking up the competition Star Tribune, which emerged from bankruptcy this week:

That should stoke the speculation that there’s already a dance underway that might lead the Twin Cities to becoming a one-newspaper town.

    I may be naive but I think it could be just what it says. The Twin Cities ARE better for having two paper. Plus the PiPress (and the staff that run it) know they are in not-so-different circumstances than the Strib.

  • Bob Collins

    You may well be right.

    Here we are online discussing the apparent fate of 19th century dead tree edition media (ok it was high tech in those days)

    Anybody else see the irony?

  • Gardoglee

    Yes, we are on an online site. One managed by a radio network, the same guys who were supposed to kill the newspapers in the 1920’s and 1930’s, and who were supposed to be killed along with the newspapers by television in the 1950’s and 1960’s. It is indeed ironic.
