Another Newspaper casualty in US

The Journal Register Company, filed for Chapter 11 protection on Saturday.

The Journal Register owns 20 daily and 159 other newspapers, serving parts of Philadelphia, Michigan, Connecticut, the Cleveland area and New York. It has about 3,500 employees.

We know The Journal well as its the publisher of excellent The New Haven Register in Connecticut.

Lets hope these guys can take the difficult decisions and emerge stronger from chapter 11.
