Re(3): Petition to ask the Independent Owner to Keep the Crossword IP: 22.214.171.124 Posted on February 15, 2016 at 01:20:14 AM by anax
Really hope I'm not clutching at straws here, but why would the Indy abandon crosswords just because it moves from print to online? It would be a case of being the one to blink first, and to what end? The crossword has been an integral part of newspapers (even an essential part of their character – think The Times) for 100 years, and in the great scheme of things it's not an expensive part of the operation. Surely we don't have a national press thinking “We need to find an excuse to get rid of crosswords”.
Why would any news outlet drop something of proven popularity while all the others retain it?
