I have a surprise for you: both of them could close in spite of your reflexive cheerleading. The PG doesn't lean THAT far left. The fact both Block twins are Trump-friendly is no secret, though the PG endorsed no presidential candidate.


The PG has no decent conservative columnists. Ruth Ann Dailey is little more than a dull, faith-based rightie with no real insight. Trib editorial editor Bob Pellegrino is a by-the-numbers conservative nearly as dull as Ruth Ann.

The Trib in Greensburg and Tarentum is still a paper, even though it's shrunken to virtually nothing. Pittsburgh is a website, and not a very good one. At the top, Jennifer Bertetto is a bureaucrat with no real knowledge of journalism. If she has standards, her recent promotions sure don't reflect them. At TTM, mediocrity rules. No props to the PG, on a steady downhill decline for years with many of their best staffers leaving and the editors indifferent to readers and anything that doesn't involve saving their own jobs. Does anybody think David Shribman cares about this region, or anything except his dull Sunday column?

Both PG and Trib have gotten leaner and meaner to the point they aren't worth subscribing to or buying over the counter. Feel free to cheer the continued existence of two lousy papers, but I won't be joining in the hurrahs.
