It worked! The Tribune has successfully imitated the process established by passenger trains a generation ago: It is killing its own subscriber base.

Due to increasingly alienating editorial positions, even in news articles, undependable service and diminished content, we are joining the rest of our friends and family and turning to the internet. Sadly, we won’t be following The Tribune. There are better sources, even for local Utah news. That’s too bad, because we have relied on The Tribune for many years. We’re grieving the loss of an old friend, a role no longer filled by The Tribune.
