Baltimore Examiner publishes final issue

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Baltimore Examiner has published its last issue.

The free tabloid that launched less than three years ago as the city's second daily newspaper printed its last issue on Sunday.

Clarity Media Group, the paper's Denver-based parent company, blamed slower-than-expected ad sales when it announced the closure last month. Clarity said about 90 people would lose their jobs.

The front page of the last issue features a photograph of Baltimore's Inner Harbor with the Examiner building in the background with the headlines: "Goodbye Baltimore," and "Thanks for reading."

Publisher Mike Beatty thanked readers, saying they took pride in writing for them six days a week. He also thanked advertisers for their business and staff for their hard work.

It's truly a sad day for the city of Baltimore. On a day so many of us wished would never come, here we stand, now, in a one newspaper town.

The Baltimore Spectator will have more on this and the resulting impact including community response in the coming days. Please share your thoughts with us by emailing; BaltimoreSpectator@gmail.com

To all those who willfully, deliberately and routinely violate the civil rights of law abiding American Citizens; Yes, you're powerful. Sure, you're everywhere. But this is still America, and the Constitution of the United States Of America still reigns supreme as the law of the land. The Baltimore Spectator will vigorously and aggressively defend against any and all attempts at spying and suppression. Let it be known to all that we are already aware of the regular monitoring and shadowing attempts. There is nothing to hide, but cross the line and there will be hell to pay.

In the end, efforts to impinge upon the freedoms of the people will ultimately fail. Some of us may get taken out in the ongoing battle for true and lasting freedom, but as I've said many times before, and will say till the day I die or get taken out by you goons, THERE ARE MORE OF US, THAN THERE ARE OF YOU.

A.F. James MacArthur -- American patriot & lover of liberty.
