"FINANCIAL TELL" AT THE SACRAMENTO BEE
Saturday morning I noticed something in the Sacramento Bee that brought a smile to my face, and the Bee hardly ever brings a smile to my face. The great and only newspaper of the capitol city of California is now placing ads on its front page. Saturday, below the fold, they were selling furniture.
There's only one reason why a major newspaper would do this: ad revenue is drying up. People are getting their news from other sources--The New Media comes to mind.
The Bee has long been a tool of the "progressive left" here in California and it was just a matter of time before they were forced into this situation. The financial realities of being a progressive rag are now coming home to roost. It's about time.
