The Bay Guardian --after 48 years, is shutting down. The reason: no money.

SFist says some staffers say the left-wing alt will live on in some form. Translation: It's still shutting down.
The Guardian in its early days offered inspired journalism and thought-provoking writing on a variety of subjects, most notably its coverage of San Francisco City Hall. And although it had a tendency to consistently go way over the top on its advocacy style, it was nevertheless worth the price of admission: free. The print edition was a lively read and the restaurant reviews and club listings were one of a kind.
