Death of the Newspaper

I'm a huge fan of the San Francisco Chronicle. It breaks my heart when I see cost cutting like this. It hurts the paper and the worst part is that it's just a drop in the bucket. They need wholesale changes or they're in big trouble.
"Beginning today, the paper will institute three changes intended to reduce printing costs without compromising news-gathering resources or news space....On Mondays and Tuesdays only, the Sports and Business sections will be combined, with Sports starting from the front and Business from the back."
