I remember the Sun publisher saying he didn't see the value in having two political cartoonists, specifically saying he'd rather hire another reporter than another cartoonist. 

Speaking of the value newsroom managers place on cartoons, I just remembered a circumstance regarding Jules Feiffer, the legendary, Pulitzer Prize winner for the Village Voice in New York. The Voice wanted to cut him from the staff in 1997, but wanted to get his work through the Universal Press Syndicate for $200 a week.

Another nail in the coffin. From The Seattle Times"Starbucks Stores to Stop Selling Newspapers in the Fall, Pointing to 'Changing Customer Behavior'"

Bad enough you no longer see USA Today newspaper boxes any more. Now this.
