A non-profit news model doesn't work out

Chicago News Cooperative, an online alternative to the Tribune and Sun-Times run by former Los Angeles Times editor Jim O'Shea, will shut down later this month, according to media in Chicago. The scary thing about that, if you are a believer in news startups, is that the CNC wasn't a technology play or some guys in their apartment. It had a partnership to provide print content to the New York Times twice a week and partnerships with public TV and radio stations in Chicago.
