HBO @ Noon: PI Up For Sale

Item: Seattle Post-Intelligencer up for sale/Seattle Times

More Info: The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, which first rolled off the presses in 1863 and has been the state's longest-publishing newspaper, is up for sale, according to the paper's Web site. The newspaper's staff was called into a closed meeting today by publisher Roger Oglesby. Present at the meeting was Hearst Newspaper President Steve Swartz, who told the newsroom that Hearst Corp. is starting a 60-day process to find a buyer. If a buyer is not found, Swartz said, possible options include creating an all-digital operation, and shutting down the paper.

Question: Which newspaper did you grow up reading?
