Detroit Now Home To Collapsing Newspaper Industry, Too

News

Throughout 2008 we have relied on our belovedDetroit Free Press for exactly two things: transcripts of former mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's fantastically erotic text messages, and blow-by-blow chronicles of the downfall of our once-proud American auto industry. Now the noble Freep and the other Detroit paper, The Detroit News, must fire some people and scale back their home delivery days because of the DEATH OF PRINT.


So sad, this tragic tubercular waning of a once-proud American enterprise! The good news is that the Free Press and News will not be laying off any newsroom staff -- so they say -- so the people they let go will probably be, hmm, the people who print the papers that will only be delivered three days a week now? Fortunately, all those laid-off press operators will be able to find work...uh....not building cars! They can be New Media Web Masters instead, or start writing porn for cell phones. It's a growth industry.

Cripes the News has been awful lately! And so Yr Editrix suggested we find some good, positive news. Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
