The SF Chronicle reports that The Nichi Bei Times, Northern California’s oldest Japanese American community newspaper will be shut down on September 10th. While the official reasoning for the paper shutting down is blamed on the gradual move from news papers to websites, a commenter named washgrad posted his reasoning on why the Nichi Bei Times has lost readership and thus ad revenue, and I’m kind of inclined to agree: “There is no more ‘community’ Jtown news so now everything is a ‘how I see it as a Japanese American.’ News flash: other Japanese Americans don’t care! We already know what how you see the world, so stop telling us what we already know … realize that death, suburbanization and intermarriage have changed the game.”
