@MrsGh0stWrecker I respect your position but am firmly on team Coloradan
Which is to say, for every Coloradan, even if your local paper isn't owned by the hedge fund strangling the Post (if you live in Boulder, it is), the cuts there affect you and what you know about your community and state more than you might realize.
Particularly true for state politics. The Camera, for example, doesn't have a Capitol reporter, so, with rare exception, if something's going down there we defer to the Post's coverage. It's the same way that the NYT and WaPo often set the tone for papers around the country.
