I haven't figured out which is the more Rational of the two. Reason aside, they should both give up on world/nation coverage. That's the beat of NPR, the Guardian, NYT, BBC, WSJ and the blogosphere. At the very least they need to provide a feed that excludes national/world coverage - just local news, events, entertainment, etc.

Anyone know of other new media startups doing metro and state coverage?
