This has absolutely nothing to do with the content of the paper, but with the shift in the media through which the content is delivered. Whether it is the "left leaning major city" newspapers or the "oh so objective conservative" newspapers like the Washington Times, print media is slowly going the way of the dodo, because it simply cannot compete with the 24x7 instant news cycle the internet provides. A newspaper is literally yesterday's news, and every day less people are rolling with yesterday's news anymore.

I am not so sure this paper was so liberal just my view. Times have changes but I used to really enjoy my coffee and paper in the morning. For me the computer just is not the same.
See, I can agree with this. For some inexplicable reason, I still dig the aesthetics of a newspaper in the hand. The ink-stained fingers, that paper smell, the aggravation of hunting ahead to page A-12 to continue the story ... there's something I'll miss about all that when physical papers are gone for good. The Times-Picayune has been a massive part of New Orleans-area culture over the years, I'm still a little surprised at this decision.
