Knight Ridder fallout

Tim Porter posts about the Websites of the formerly Knight Ridder newspapers in his First Draft blog. What will happen to the 'orphan papers'' sites? What about Real Cities and the former KR Digital? Now if you click on a link to any KR site it goes to and sometimes gets an error message. Some of the newspaper sites, like the Miami Herald's, no longer mention Knight Ridder but don't mention McClatchy either. The Washington Bureau's website does, though.

KR shareholders got less than was projected at the sale announcement, when all was said and done.

All very disconcerting, especially for retirees, who are not getting much news out of this big change.
