It looks like USA Today. Ewww.


Honestly, the redesign is just a symptom of the continuing deterioration of the news media, and as such it barely registers as shock for me. It's not news, remember, it's entertainment, and it only has to be entertainment because it's business.


Um, last I checked the Trib increased their paper to seventy-five cents. I don't know why they think they're 25 cents better than the Sun-Times. Maybe they brought their price back down now that they're using less paper.

What are Chicago papers good for anyway (to me)?
1. Sports
1a. Theatre reviews/local arts
3. The latest local political outrage/malfeasance

Everything else, national news and the like, I get online.

Ryan: That goes to show how long it's been since I bought a Trib. I read it every day online, but in truth I rarely see a hard copy.
