The Times-Picayune has had a long history of excellent journalism. For a city this size to be without a daily paper is terrible. Many do not have access to the news other than the brief 10 sentence headlines that come from local news channels. The do not provide the in depth coverage of issues that are vital to the community. No note tot he readers can compensate for no daily paper.

I for one as a New Orleanian are not sad to see it go; I stopped reading it some time ago. I was tired of seeing the Saints on the front page as major news when there are so many other things going on in this City that are ignored-like CRIME. Good riddance to the Times Pick Your Nose.

Yea you are right as they should be.  However, they were on the front page as recent as 9/25.

Too many newspapers have become propaganda agencies for liberal politicians.

The TP was conservative, that one reason it's dead.

Memo to the newpaper, load your staff with only liberal content and editoral and you lose half the reader base. Load it with conservatives and you suffer the same fate.
The jounalism people have forgotten they are suppose to report all sides of a story instead of the bias they learned in college.
IT IS A BUSINESS, ignore that fact and you perish.

any newspaper that support science and the scientific method is going to be branded "liberal"...conservatives want holy books and gods...thank goodness that liberal papers go out of business rather than bending to conservative nonsense...

There is more to the reasons a paper loses it's readers. I did not like the tone and the content whe it came to providing the news. I did not agree with editorials and found it a total waste of my time and money.
Technology has also had a impact as well as the "enviromental concers" of the paper print process. So not just lib vs conservative.

We were NOT taught bias in college, but while we are on that issue did you even go to one?? Have you ever stopped to think that the papers acting so much LIKE a business is part of the decline of them???

I realize that Fox News may have ruined your concept of what news is supposed to be today, but everything in the world doesn't have to mirror YOUR viewpoint to be worthy of our time to know.

This is so sad. There's nothing like holding a newspaper and taking your time to pour through it on a Sunday morning with a cupa joe or hot tea.

A lot of people are cheering the demise of the printed newspapers claiming superiority of web reporting and availability. I think that is short sighted thinking and I don't think it is a good thing. You can't tuck your computer under your arm to read the news during lunch unless you have a lap top. You can't enjoy a nice day on a bench in a park with your laptop as easily as with a newspaper. What if people own and prefer desk top computers? We have to sit in the comfort of our air temperature controlled home with bathroom readily available as well as a kitchen full of food and beverages. If you change your residence you can't wrap up your dishes, cups and glasses in your lap top. You can't put your lap top in a bird cage bottom tray either.

The USA Today should make a deal with the local papers. Add a Local section that will give local news inside the USA Today. This is the only way to survive I think.

It's kinda like with General Mortors. Better to let them go and create a greater vacuum for someone with a better idea and that isn't so greedy.

It's a sad day for N.O. but not for the reasons you cite. Please stay home. We don't need you.

Yea, New Orleans is a perfect example of an infestation of Democrats.

And they have Paul Vallas who ruined their education system to thank for that

I'm waiting for the day when our local farce of a newspaper, the "San Diego Tea Bag Times" gets driven into the ground by its inept new owners.

So many memories reading The Time Picayune while I was growing up in the city of New Orleans. Another New Orleans institution gone. What a sad day.

Now what does The President have to do with the downfall of The Picayune? The Governor Of Louisiana is surely doing a great job right? Don't make me laugh. Plus The Picayune was holding on after Katrina. So get your facts straight before you come over bringing your nonsense here.

I have fond memories of my grandfather and my father sitting in their easy chairs reading the newspaper . . Oh well before long we will need a good easy chair to sit at our computer if we want to read the news . Kinda sad if you ask me . I enjoy my computer and a lot of the things I can do and learn with it . But sometimes I wonder if it is a curse also .
