The lead article in yesterday's local paper detailed significant problems the "frenzied" developer Cay Clubs is facing. The problems are so serious, the Citizen writer speculated Cay Clubs has bankruptcy looming.
But today, all traces of the article have disappeared from the Citizen's website. There is no correction printed today - so one can only wonder why this particular article is gone.
Fortunately, Rock Trueblood has published the major points of the article on his blog. In his post, Rock speculates on what is going on:
"Key West is such a small town that the paper is inextricably dependent on advertising revenue to make up for its tiny circulation. And no ad revenue is bigger than Real Estate.We would welcome an explanation from the Key West Citizen.
I feel someone, somewhere, with ties to Real Estate interests made a big ass phone call to the Citizen and asked, cajoled, pushed or even threatened Citizen bigwig with the loss of ad dollars if that Cay Clubs article wasn't erased online."
