And, we have another round. Hold on to your hats Put your head between your knees and kiss your local reporting goodbye (in 1 out of 6 cases)...

USA Today publisher Gannett Co. is nearing a deal to combine with rival GateHouse Media, a move that would join the nation’s two largest newspaper groups by circulation.

(snip)

A tie-up could help the companies weather the brutal environment for local newspapers around the country. A merger would give Gannett a far wider geographic footprint to sell digital advertising through its USA Today network and help speed the companies’ reorientation away from print.

Charleston SC seems to be keeping up with the other Charleston. (Or Charlestown)

Not according to that map -- Although one can make the case about both Charleston, SC and Charleston, WV, there's no corresponding dark spot in the Eastern Panhandle of WV, where Charles Town (two words) is located (not far from Harper's Ferry and Shepherdstown, btw).
