The Rocky calls it quits

Here’s an interesting  and poignant video that documents the death watch for the Rocky Mountain News, the feisty tabloid that served metropolitan Denver and Colorado for 150 years… until last week. The paper stopped its presses last week after its owner, the Scripps Company, failed to find a buyer for the property. But the closure of a publishing house is more than stopping presses, shuttering buildings and switching off computers — at its heart is an action that affects the people who make up its workforce and provide the vitality of the operation. It’s a sign of changing and evolving times that newspapers are referred to as “products” and “properties” — a nomenclature that seems to extract the human factor that provides their essence.
