For sale: The P-I

For sale: The P-I

Alas it looks like Seattle is going to become a one newspaper town.

After 146 years of delivering news, the Seattle P-I faces becoming what it has chronicled: history.

The Seattle P-I's parent company, The Hearst Corp., said Friday that it has put the paper up for sale and will stop publishing unless someone buys it in 60 days. If no buyer emerges, the paper would either become a Web-only publication or cease all operations.

Maybe Paul Allen will buy it to keep the more liberal voice of Seattle alive.
