So long, E&P.

Editor & Publisher closing after 108 years. :-(

Thursday's closure of E&P "was a shock," said its editor, Greg Mitchell. "We knew that something big was happening but we didn't think the aftermath was that we wouldn't be sold and it would be folded."

...But Mitchell hopes Editor & Publisher will return in another form. "I would hope because of our special history and our role as a watchdog in journalism that it would be more likely in this case that there will be someone that's going to say, `Hey, we're not going to let this die.'"


Completely unrelated: My upstairs neighbors are having a yelling match right now, which is not at all conducive to studying. I need to locate some earplugs.

Romenesko's blog has never been more important.

They're killing Kirkus too. :(

I hope someone steps in. It seems so shortsighted to shutter either completely.

Yeah, it really sucks.

I hope so, too. I hate to see them both gone. It makes me sad.

Aw, thanks. They usually don't yell like that, but they're annoying in other ways! ;-)
