The Patch appears to be dead

It appears the local news experiment run at a huge corporate level, called Patch, is now dead, or at least being “significantly realigned,” following its sale. I wondered aloud a few years ago how long AOL would continue to subsidize a revenue negative experiment.

Despite my occasional angst at what I saw very locally in San Diego as “Jimmy-Olsen-boy-reporter” style journalism, fewer news sources in the community is never good news.

See Romenesko for the news.
