Sun readers upset about cut business coverage

August 28, 2008

A number of Baltimore Sun subscribers have complained to the paper about its recent cuts in business coverage, from stock listings to stories.

Baltimore SunD.S. Ewell Sr. writes, “”The lack of content in the Business pages in the new Sun is disappointing. Although I am computer literate, I choose not to go online but to get my financial information at the same time I read the rest of the newspaper.”

And John Anthony writes, “My main reason for purchasing the Baltimore Sun is for the business news, especially the stock listings. I am shocked and dismayed that The Sun has eliminated so much business news content from the newspaper. I know there are others like myself who will be seeking other newspapers to find more business news and stock listings. I think The Sun has taken a big risk by cutting so much from the newspaper.”

Deputy managing editor Paul Moore responded by writing, “As well as other Sun editors, I understand how this change can be disconcerting for some readers, especially those who are not computer literate or simply prefer getting this information from the print edition. Sun editors will continue to carefully monitor this situation.”
