Current Affairs: Manassas News & Messenger to Fold

In this age of shrinking newsprint and tight corporate budgets, it was not a surprise - but very disheartening - to learn that the Manassas News & Messenger (and its wonderful website InsideNoVA) will be closing its doors after more than a century of operation.  It is the only periodical dedicated to the current affairs, politics, history, and lifestyle of Prince William County and will be sorely missed.

To quote The Washington Post's Tom Jackman from his The State of NoVA Blog, "There are a lot of talented and hard-working journalists at the News & Messenger and InsideNoVA and they deserve our respect and thanks. They didn’t deserve to be shut down after 143 years of public service."
