  • Daily that challenged LA Times shuts down

    Yahoo! - 09/23/2014

    Dan Kennedy, a Northeastern University journalism professor, said the decision “is not really a surprise” and that the warning signs had appeared in June, when cuts were announced just months after the launch of the Register.

    “From the moment he acquired the Orange County Register, Aaron Kushner has been telling us that there was nothing wrong with the print newspaper business that investment and expansion wouldn’t cure,” Kennedy told AFP.

    “A lot of us were hoping he was right. Unfortunately he was wrong, and the flameout of the LA Register is just the latest and most visible sign of a retreat that’s been under way all year.

    “I still hope Kushner might find a way to get it right, but so far his track record speaks for itself.”
