JRC stock price: 1/3-cent per share

Not a surprise, but Friday (hat tip to Reflections of a Newsosaur) JRC, owner of the Oakland Press in Pontiac and a number of weekly and daily newspapers around Michigan and the country, filed bankruptcy.

Journal Register Company

And more here on JRC

They have hacked and slashed their staffs and newspapers to the bone and this was the final result. Sad.

I guess that unpaid Citizen Journalist idea hasn't caught on yet.

Lots of businesses would have loved to make a 14% profit in 2008.
