The late, great newspaper war

John Diaz writes:

There was a time when I enjoyed the Rocky Mountain News' smallest failings. If it missed a good story that was in the Denver Post, I breathed a sigh of relief. If its carriers were a few minutes later or a few yards farther from the porch than their Post counterparts, it was a good day. Each time I saw someone choose the broadsheet Post over the tabloid Rocky at side-by-side news racks, I felt a little rush of smug satisfaction.

Such was the ferocity of the last great American newspaper war.
