Portugal's crisis-ridden newspaper sector

Around two-thirds of the 120 employees at the daily i and the weekly Sol stand to lose their jobs because the Angolan holding Newshold is withdrawing as an investor. The future of the publications remains uncertain, commentator Elísio Summavielle complains in what may well be the daily i's last weekend edition: "What worries me is the fate of many of my colleagues who made the paper what it is. I worry about the fate of many good, young journalists. From one moment to the next they will be out of a job and without prospects of finding new employment in a country that unfortunately has stopped reading newspapers. ... To those who remain I wish courage and strength, in the certainty that they will do all they can to ensure that the new [journalistic] project is successful. The rest is irrelevant."
