Its final breath

In the end, this is what we should have expected: The Post does a much more honest and thorough examination of its demise than the one provided by the Enquirer. The overall package produced for the final edition of the Post is sad and touching. Though I've provided links below, find a copy of the Post today on the street and read it on paper.

OK, enough of the ridiculous and hilarious stereotyping of the Post being nothing but a great paper and the Enquirer being nothing but bad. Serious, careful readers (hell, even casual readers) can tell you the truth: Both papers have never been better than mediocre.

Yeah, it's a shame to lose the Post. It's never good to have only one paper left in a market. But to keep suggesting that the Post did only the noblest of work for the sake of humanity itself (and its staff would have done it all for free, right?) - while the nasty, evil Enquirer wants only to RUIN CINCINNATI AND ALL OF JOURNALISM!!!! is nothing short of silly and insulting.

Newsache would be taken much more seriously if its critiques were not presented in such consistently sophmoric, simplistic, and sensationalistic terms.

It looks like the links are all dead already. The Post is gone from Cincinnati.com.

i would have expected no different from the enquirer. its horribly tiny profit margin can ill afford to keep any of those links around any longer than absolutely necessary! the shareholders demand no less!

They didn't even give us 24 hours in our last news cycle before killing off the Post Web page. Typical Enqy bullshit and Scripps chickenshit defense.

Alas, the Post is buried under - and with no respect. Happy Enquirer folks?

The Post was removed from the Enquirer/Cincinnati.com web site many days ago.

I enjoyed Nick Clooney's last column, as I did most of his columns. Like Laura Pulfer, his voice will be missed.

The redesign of www.kypost.com looks nice.

ashamed enky staffer:

are you so ashamed that you're gonna quit your job and deprive the enky of your services?

didn't think so. you're in it for the money, of course, just as the enquirer is, and the post was.

Well, I tried to find it and buy it on the street; I spent two days, Monday and Tuesday going box to box and store to store. I even went downtown and checked about 20 boxes and Fountain Square News. Nada. I can get a paper from Quarachi, Pakistan there, but no Post.
So, after being a loyal reader for years, and daily making multiple stops to find the paper, I missed the Final Edition. I am SO bummed out. The irony....

If anyone has any idea where I can purchase a final edition, I'd appreciate the knowledge.

The Post's content was removed instantly from Cincinnati.com because the site was part of the JOA, too. With that dissolved, Scripps exercised its right as copyright owner and put much of it up on its new kypost.com pages (at least th N.Ky. content).

I'm praying for y'all.

Given the near-absolute lack of quality of Gannettoid leadership in Cinci -- think Mike Gallagher -- you're probably doomed.
