Seattle Post-Intelligencer up for sale

As I offered in my predictions post, 2009 will be devastating for newspapers. We will see big newspapers liquidated and it is not wildly speculative to suggest that a major city will find itself without a daily newspaper this year.

Hearst Corp. put Seattle’s oldest newspaper, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, up for sale Friday, saying that if it can’t find a buyer in the next 60 days, the paper will close or continue to exist only on the Internet.
