Former KMT organ The China Post has announced the end of its print run. Apparently its final edition will be published on May 15, 2017:
When I arrived in Taiwan, there were (incredibly!) three English-language daily papers: The China Post (with its entertainingly hardcore blue leanings–which have certainly softened lately); the Taipei Times (unabashedly pro-Green, and part of the Liberty Times group); and the Taiwan News (with its refreshingly sharp and non-dogmatically progressive editorials back in the day).
In print form, we’ll be down to the Taipei Times.
Do forumosans care? Is a healthy English-language press necessary in Taiwan? Feel free to share your views.
