Maurice Cherry examines the crisis in the U.S. newspaper industry:
On November 2, Oakland will join the ranks of Denver, Tucson, Cincinnati and Seattle as a large metropolitan city that has lost at least one daily newspaper. According to the official blog of the John S. & James L. Knight Foundation, the Oakland Tribune will be “rebranded” as the East Bay Tribune. The rebranding process also includes folding in The Fremont Argus, the Alameda Times-Star, the Hayward Daily Review and the West County Times. All of these papers are owned by the Bay Area News Group.
