This is sad news on many levels. Some of the best media criticism and
political reporting came from the Phoenix. Dan Kennedy, David Bernstein
and others often covered stories the mainstream press did not. A lot of
good reporters worked for the Phoenix, and you wonder if they will be
able to find work, given today's financially unstable media environment.
