Post, Rocky hope to profit from Obama editions — at some...

Call it the Newspaper Preservation Act of 2009. Act now, and you can shell out more than six times the cover price for a souvenir bundle of five inauguration-day copies of The Denver Post or Rocky Mountain News. That's right, if you call before -- well, before they run out -- the Denver Post Inauguration Keepsake Pack including FIVE Jan. 21, 2009, editions can be yours at the low, low -- I mean, horrendously inflated -- price of $15.50. That's for a set of five 50-cent newspapers, which would've cost ya a cool $2.50 at the 7-Eleven on Wednesday .

Rocky spikes column asking if Feds might intervene to prevent shutdown

Rocky Mountain News contributor Jason Salzman wrote in a column for the newspaper last week that "putting the Rocky on the market for one month over the holidays looks like it’s not a good-faith effort to find a buyer for the newspaper." But the observation didn't appear in the Rocky because editor and publisher John Temple rejected the column, Salzman says in a blog post Tuesday. It's the first time in more than four years the Rocky has refused one of his biweekly "On the Media" columns, Salzman writes.

Rocky Mountain News staffers take to Web in effort to save...

A Web site aimed at keeping the Rocky Mountain News alive launched Sunday night as part of a campaign by the newspaper's staff to rally public support a week after E.W. Scripps Co. put the Denver daily up for sale and said it could cease publication if no buyer emerges. The IWantMyRocky.com site urges readers to share memories and propose methods to keep the 149-year-old newspaper — Colorado's oldest business — from closing. "We meet in this strange place in a noble effort to save the Rocky Mountain News," Rocky columnist Mike Littwin writes. "And if we can’t save the Rocky, we can, at minimum, make some noise before we go."

Dick Wadhams and the politics of mouthwash

Two things jump to mind when thinking about the outcome of the Colorado vote: 1. Rep. Doug Lamborn — two years ago a freshman trying to find the Capitol bathroom — is now the Dean of Colorado’s Republican delegation in Washington. 2. Dick Wadhams’ threat to shove a bunch of 30-second ads up Democrat Mark Udall’s ass over a missed vote might just have marked the Macaca moment of his failed effort to get his old pal Bob Schaffer elected to the United States Senate. Such trashy talk underscores what went so utterly wrong for Republicans in Colorado on Tuesday.
