Denver (AP) Rocky Mountain News staffers have launched a web site to rally readers who want to show their support for the newspaper, which has been put up for sale.
John Ensslin, a reporter and group spokesman, says collecting reader and staffer comments will help put a face on what some may see as just a business transaction.
E.W. Scripps co. announced last week it was putting its flagship newspaper up for sale. It expects it to lose $15 million this year. Scripps says it may close the newspaper if there is no buyer by mid-january.
The Denver Post and The News have a joint operating agreement. The Denver newspaper agency handles their business and production operations, while both maintain competing newsrooms.
