Cantwell Statement Following Seattle Post-Intelligencer’s Announcement It Will Cease Publication on Tuesday

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) issued the following statement following news that the Seattle Post-Intelligencer will cease publication tomorrow:

“For nearly 150 years, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer has served as a witness to our history. Today is a sad day for communities across Washington and for the hundreds of talented men and women of the PI. I have gotten to know many of these reporters, columnists, and editorial writers over the years, and I am confident that these hard-working community watchdogs will be able to find promising new careers and new ways to provide the public with the information it needs.”
