The New Mexico Independent is closing down its larger operation, according to statements on Twitter from NMI editor Gwyneth Doland. She writes:
“The New Mexico Independent as you know it is now closed. The site will remain live, possibly with a half-time blogger. Deepest apologies.
Thank you @fbihop, @m_ruth, @BryantFurlow, @Trip_44 for 2 1/2 years of the best, most innovative reporting I could have imagined.
And thank you, loyal readers, for all of your loyalty, support, encouragement, tips and readership. We couldn't have done it without you!”
The New Mexico Independent is part of the American Independent News Network, a privately funded non-profit corporation providing online news coverage. The Washington Independent is also signing off today, giving the recession as reason.
