Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2008 | To me, the most interesting aspect of the Union-Tribune’s plaguing troubles is the fact that the newspaper is still trying to salvage what Dotinga calls the “San Diego government team” and the “watchdog team.” This is surprising for a newspaper that takes almost its entire front page from the wires and has been accused in the past of not providing enough local coverage.

Nevertheless, I hope for the best for the U-T. While I am still in high school, I find time to follow current affairs and news closely. Indeed, I sometimes find myself deferring The New York Times or The Los Angeles Times for the local U-T.

The economy’s effect on media organizations and newspapers in general has been tough. Whether the U-T escapes from its current situation intact will probably determine how other reeling newspapers will have to deal with the same problem.
