Best Daily Newspaper (2002)
Rocky Mountain News
It's debatable whether the joint operating agreement between the Rocky Mountain News and the Denver Post saved the News from sure death -- but it certainly seems to have lit a fire under the staff. The Post has the edge in terms of resources, but the News is doing more with less. We're glad Denver remains a two-newspaper town, and the Post definitely is capable of making a comeback. But if you only have time to read one daily these days, make it the News.
