The Ann Arbor News was a great newspaper. Will annarbor.com be a great on-line news source?
We don't know yet because it's late getting up and running (not a good sign but understandable). I have to say, though, that the preview being offered is not encouraging. The lay-out pictured reminds me of a free, pre-packaged blog spot, which is fine for individuals but annarbor.com is supposed to be a professional outfit.
And then there is the "coverage" of the Ann Arbor city council meeting by someone who has been in town less than a week. Great.
Too bad all the laid-off reporters can't put together their own competing operation on-line.
