Baloney. Other local publications cover goings-on in local TV news. City Paper has done it themselves. Ever read Frances Monahan's dissections of Pittsburgh TV news? You just proved the point of the original poster. Too much work, I guess.

So in several of the respondents' worlds, they think that people who are turning away from newspapers in droves and no longer reading them will be interested in reading why people are no longer reading them, and interested in the inner workings of a newspaper they no longer read.
Gotcha.

Fact-City Paper is nothing but a bunch of fluff, which it was not under Potter's leadership.

Fact- Expecting anything substantive from them since Potter left is to reside in a fantasy world.

Fact- People are turning away but many are still getting the PG. They wonder why it's shinking and why home delivery areas are fewer. They're curious as to the reasons coverage and stories are getting sloppy. They question why its price keeps increasing.That's why so many are turning away locally. To you, these issues are obviously insignificant.

Fact- The mindless boosters and cheerleaders at Pittsburgh Magazine can't be expected to take up the slack. If they can't apply it to one of their endless "Top Ten" lists, they'd rather not bother.

Obviously in the limited local world City Paper cares about (Bloomfield, Lawrenceville, Millvale, Braddock, Oakland, Shadyside, South Side, etc.) the condition of the Burgh's two large dailies is of little interest. Why? Do they have delusions they can someday fill the gap? *Really??* Dream on.

Saddest about Pittsburgh Magazine: the Editor, Cindi Lash is an ex-PG reporter/Sunday Editor. Her mindless cheerleading in her new job is sickening and one more reason Pittsburgh Mag is more irrelevant and over the hill every day.

Ever read the book reviews in the magazine? Any writer in the Pittsburgh metro area automatically gets a rave review. Ever read any of the books reviewed? I have, to my sorrow.

I believe it was Mike Prisuta (the man who, while at the Trib, wrote the story about the next Steelers coach being Mike Grimm) being a meathead.

As someone else said here, Cindi Lash, a good journalist in her P-G days, has no standards since she left the PG to take this gig. Prisuta's cred isn't stellar but I'm not surprised he's in their pages.
