CHICAGO The Mexico edition of The Miami Herald, Mexico City's only English-language daily, is folding on June 1, the paper announced.
"Unfortunately due to economic considerations the paper will close until further notice," the paper said in a note to readers. There was no further information on the shuttering.
The paper was launched four years ago in a partnership with the big Mexico City daily El Universal. It was not clear who made the decision to pull the plug on the Herald. A McClatchy Co. spokesperson said he had no information on that. Officials involved with the newspaper at the Herald and El Universal could not be reached.
The Herald was launched two months after a Mexican-owned English-language daily, The Mexico City News, was shut down after 53 years of publication.
"There was a land of Publishers and Editors called the Newspaper Business... Here in this pretty world Journalism took its last bow... Here was the last ever to be seen of Reporters and their Enablers, of Anonymous Sources and of Stringers... Look for it only in books, for it is no more than a dream remembered. A Civilization Gone With the Wind..."
With apologies to Margaret Mitchell...
Probably has something to do with all of their Mexican readers sneaking off to the United States.
U got it.
Those sneaking into the U.S. don’t speak or read much English.
This could go faster than even I dreamed....
