The well-known and large news website examiner.com is closing on 10th July. I have heard this from the inquisitr.com website. They are the only website reporting it but their page has been deleted. Therefore I don’t have details. The information comes from a Google search “‘Examiner.com’ Website To Shut Down On July 10 — Writers React…” We don’t know what the writers’ reaction is. No doubt there is a lot of upset and anger.
There are probably hundreds of writers for examiner.com who have lost a source of income. I don’t have more information at this time. My feeling is that the shut down is due to increased competition and their site not being able to be sufficiently profitable. If someone can provide information in a comment that would be great. This news is relevant to PoC because there are lots cat news writers on examiner.com and that source of news will end. It may have a positive effect on PoC views. Just hoping.
