Disclaimer: I hate the DMN and I will never forgive them for the their selective investigations regarding the SWC.
However, as I have been going on the chron website lately for news on the Wuhan virus I’ve noted how absolutely superficial and shallow the chron interface is. It’s embarrassing, like a cross between a twitter magazine and a food periodical. Just egregious that a city of this import has to have one paper so incredibly juvenile.
The DMN, conversely seems to be more substantive, with the majority of links devoted to local news and developments. Just an overall more professional operation. Sad.
The news business needs competition. Having only one major news source in a metro area of roughly 6 million is awful. I didn’t like the Post that much but I wish they would have survived.
