Save the Times Picayune

I'm sure that you've heard the news on the Times Picayune.

If the out of state owners have their way, this blog and many others will be the way that we muddle through getting information
.... and
if you don't have high speed internet?
.... then eventually it'll be back to word on the street or TV news for you.
What the greedy out of town owners don't understand is that what they are doing will make them less revalent in the long term not more.

See the recent article from THE LENS which shows that this neighborhood's Broadband coverage over time changes; ranging over the course of Dec 2008 to Dec 2010 betwen 20% to 60% coverage and hovering around 40%.

Newsprint still matters. 

Quoting other web (Facebook Save the Times Picayune) outrage over loss of the Newspaper:
"Lafayette, Baton Rouge, Shreveport, Monroe and even Hammond all support daily newspapers, but New Orleans can not? NOLA can support an NFL team AND an NBA team — both profitable in very small markets — yet we can't support a daily?"

Well it seems we actually can. 
It is the #1 in the Nation in Daily Readership.

Sources say the Times Picayune is profitable. But it is other papers owned by NewHouse that are not and New Orleans is being sacrificed.

Feel free to Express your outrage.
