Who needs journalists

As usual, Bruce MacKinnon at the Chronicle-Herald nailed it.

The Daily News in Halifax has been shut down. Having been through -- a luckily very short -- an unplanned employment gap in the journalism field, I have a lot of empathy for those staffers fired.

So, MacKinnon did a classy cartoon to wave goodbye to his competition. Love the pig nose.

There go the lazy Sundays at my folks place, getting both Halifax papers and the Globe.... a death knell to the three paper Sunday.

And there go a good handful of the media jobs in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
