'Citizen' Debacle Update: Goddard Intervenes!

Posted By on Fri, May 15, 2009 at 6:09 PM

The Citizen debacle just got loonier, with the news that state Attorney General Terry Goddard is seeking a court order to keep the paper publishing. A jilted prospective buyer thinks Gannett is acting inappropriately by turning down his offer and choosing to (mostly) shutter the paper instead. So he asked Goddard to intervene ... and by God, he did.

What happens next is up to a judge.

So ... go to the Citizen's Web site where you can read a surreal mixture of their fine farewell content and ongoing coverage of their will-we-close-or-won't-we saga.

And to those of you who work for the Citizen: God bless you, you poor souls!
