Re: “Why CNC is closing

I'm surprised that no commenter on here has yet posted the obvious: This is a depressing development for Chicagoans who care about transparency and accountability in their government.

Whatever suspicions one might have about why CNC is shutting down, let's face the one reality we know: CNC over the past year produced some of the best, most thought-provoking news coverage a Chicagoan could find, and now, we will continue without that excellent news coverage. Many outstanding CNC journalists have no jobs, and the power brokers whom CNC (and The Reader) pester now have one less pest about which to worry. The rest of us suffer.

Farewell, CNC; I hope you find a way to return. Ditto for your impressive staff. I'll gladly support you -- with my eyes and my wallet -- as I've done during this go-round.
