I don’t think the reporter’s speculation about the student paper, the Michigan Daily, undermining the city’s paper is on target. The AANews is dying because the city is oriented towards radio and Internet, and people had watched the paper go downhill. There is a monthly in town (an entirely different media product, I know), the Ann Arbor Observer, that is widely read and enjoyed. It does seem as if the A2 News could have saved itself if it had worked harder to earn respect and been less generic and more connected with the community.
