Council Holds Meeting on the P-I


Seattle City Council member Nick Licata, chair of a committee that deals with culture, is holding a meeting on January 28th about the looming demise of the Post-Intelligencer and whether there's anything that can be done about it. He says he has no concrete ideas for solutions but asks a salient question: "Why is it that we can throw a half billion dollars behind a professional sports team but don't blink an eye about losing a major institution?"

Is it time to start talking about a bailout for newspapers?
