According to the Baltimore Sun “The decision comes after months of unsuccessful attempts to find a buyer for the paper and failed efforts to package ads with a sister publication in Washington, Denver-based owner Clarity Media Group said today.”

The Washington Examiner has been more successful,my guess s is this year because of the campaign it was easier to sell ads because they concentrated so thoroughly on the election. I’m disappointed this is the case, but the economic climate is dictating this demise.

I will miss it.
