Rest in Peace,
The Plain Dealer flushed down the toilet. "This used to be a newsroom."

‘This used to be a newsroom’ — the scene at the Cleveland Plain Dealer
This photo explains a lot. If the Plain Dealer wasn't in bed with local politicians, this might not have happened.
As a major reorganization of the Cleveland Plain Dealer takes shape, veteran reporters are adjusting to “backpack journalism,” the division of staff into two companies, a looming move to a new office, and demands to post stories more quickly.
At the same time, they are memorializing their old newsroom in striking images that are circulating on social media and in email chains. The photo above was sent to CJR by a former Plain Dealer employee with the subject line, “This used to be a newsroom.” http://www.cjr.org/united_states_project/newsroom_culture_is_gone_at_cleveland_plain_dealer.php?page=all
