Things That Really Suck

Editor & Publisher is shutting down.

There simply are no words. None. I can't right now express how important Editor & Publisher has been over the past century to American journalism. You're just going to have to trust me on this.

Since I come from a family of newspaper people, I grew up with E&P arriving at our doorstep every week. It's analyses of the news media, not to mention the copious job listings, were like oxygen to the American media. E&P closing down is a bellweather.

Today is the day the media died.
